The Shun Classic Heavy Chef's Knife offers a 22° cutting angle instead of the 16° cutting angle of the rest of the Shun Classic line. This less-acute edge provides additional strength that helps when tackling heavier foods, for example winter squash or large heads of cabbage. Nevertheless, this knife shares the thinner blades and beautiful construction of the rest of the Shun Classic line. It's perfect for a wide range of kitchen tasks, from slicing, dicing, and chopping to rocking cuts.
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.
