Additional Information
Whether carving a holiday roast or slicing razor-thin strips of smoked salmon, you’ll love the way this slicer glides effortlessly through food. Melding the unmatched sharpness of carbon steel with stainless steel’s corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance, Shun Blue represents a leap forward in knife technology.

The blade features a core of blue steel—a fine-grained carbon steel known for its ability to take and retain an extremely sharp edge—sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. This fusion of two metals results in a blazingly sharp knife that’s a joy to cut with and easy to maintain. FEATURES
  • The knife’s 61 Rockwell Hardness offers incredible sharpness and edge retention
  • Japanese artisans use san mai construction techniques to sandwich a core of blue carbon steel between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel before hand-sharpening the blade to a 16° double-beveled edge
  • Perfectly balanced pakkawood handle is a variation on the traditional hexagonal shape and is modified to meet demanding requirements for grip, comfort and control
  • Knife will eventually develop a beautiful, dark patina along the cutting edge. This patina helps protect the carbon-steel core from corrosion and is recognized by chefs and professional cooks as the mark of a much-loved knife
  • Shun Blue was developed in partnership with Chef Chris Cosentino, known for his nose-to-tail cooking philosophy
