Description

This powerful kitchen multi-tasker is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping large quantities of fruits, vegetables, meats, and more. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan.

With its curved belly, this chef’s knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. A thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef’s knives. Plus, oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

Shun Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.

Great Knife
Life all my Shun knives, this thing is amazing. It cuts exceptionally and it easy to handle.

Veggies still do stick to the side of this knife even though it's hollow-edge. But other than that, it is a truly great knife. I don't think I would pay extra for the hollow-edge, though.

I wouldn't get this as your first good knife, though. It can be a bit to handle would recommend getting something closer to 5"" or 6"" since those navigate quickly through whatever you are cutting

Can't go wrong...
Can't go wrong with Shun nor Surlatable.

This knife is well worth the price
A wonderful chef’s knife! Well balanced and solid, but not heavy. The blade easily slices meats and veggies without much effort. Haven’t used it on herbs yet.

This knife is incredibly sharp, easy to hold, light, and comes with the Shun lifetime warranty (you can send it to be sharpened if it ever dulls). Highly recommend. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Is the knife edge susceptible to chipping? I have a small Shun utility knife that chipped almost immediately
A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have NOT had any problems with my knives chipping. I have a whole set of Shun knives that I use all the time. I am very glad to be able to afford these knives. They make so many kitchen & cooking tasks easier.
