The Shun Classic Hollow Edge Chef's Knife is designed for slicing, dicing, and chopping fruits, vegetables, and other foods. With its curved belly, this Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The hollow ground indentations on the side of the blade create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut.
The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades with D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The razor-sharp blades offer top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel provides incredible edge retention. Blades are handcrafted of durable clad with Damascus stainless steel, ground and bead-blasted creating a flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to hold. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.
