The Shun Classic Rocking Knife is the ideal tool for mincing herbs, garlic, shallots, or finely chopping a wide variety of foods, such as tomatoes for sauces and more. It is an exceptional tool for mincing herbs to fully release their flavor. Similar to a mezzaluna, it's designed to rock the deep-bellied blade across the cutting board to produce a fine mince. The extra-wide blade also serves as a convenient way to scoop up the minced food for easy transfer to the cooking pot or pan. The deep belly of the Shun Classic Rocking Knife also makes it an excellent tool for removing skin from chicken or fish. Shun's razor-sharp edge makes the task fast and easy.
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.
