The Shun Blue Steel Slicing Knife not only makes food look delicious by enabling thin cuts and even slices, but it can also make food taste better. Ideal for slicing a wide variety of meats, can also be used to cut larger vegetables. The longer length, narrower blade, and Shun-sharp edge creates long, even slices without tearing or sawing. This clean cut keeps more of the meat juices and flavors inside the meat, rather than pooling on the cutting board. The blade cut slices with a single, long stroke, while the narrow profile and razor-sharp edge lets the blade glide through the meat with less friction so each slice is perfect.

The Shun Blue Steel Knife collection was developed in partnership with award-winning Chef Chris Cosentino, internationally renowned for his "nose-to-tail" cooking philosophy. Chef Cosentino chose traditional Japanese blade shapes essential for preparing proteins, for which he is known for. The Shun Blue Steel collection features a blue carbon steel core sandwiched between two layers of mirror polished stainless steel. This unique combination delivers a razor-sharp cutting edge without the additional maintenance of a carbon knife. The blade is hand-sharpened and enhanced with a beautiful grey PakkaWood handle. This newly designed handle is a variation of the traditional styled Japanese handle. Shun Blue Steel is an exciting new collection of traditional Japanese culinary knives available not only for the professionals but for avid home cooks. Made in Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.
