The Shun Classic Carving Knife is the right knife whether you want to carve paper-thin or thick and juicy slices or meat or poultry. The razor-sharp blade makes a cleaner cut, which helps keep more of the juices and more of the flavor trapped in the meat. The longer blade makes precise slices with a single stroke, while the pointed narrow tip cuts meat away from the bone with ease. Turkey, beef, or the delicate flesh of a holiday salmon, the Shun Classic Carving knife handles them with ease, keeping the flavor sealed in and making sure your table presentation is perfection itself.

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.
