Shun's Limited Edition Engetsu series is visually stunning and utterly unique. The 71-micro layer Dual Core blade features our Zone Performance Blade Technology. The blade's beautiful layering pattern means that the cutting properties at the heel and tip are different from those at the blade center, providing different zones of performance where required. The center section of the blade features dense patterning of the two stainless steels. Over time, as the blade is used, the two steels wear at different rates, creating micro serrations along the cutting edge and enabling precision slicing. This intense patterning also enhances the blade's food-releasing properties.

You can feel Shun Engetsu's difference with each cut. Precision control at heel and tip. Butter-smooth slicing at center. This is our Zone Performance Blade Technology, revealed by the graceful, circular blade pattern. Engetsu, which means "full moon" in Japanese, is named for this unique, circular pattern. With its exquisite looks and enhanced cutting performance, the full moon rises. Includes beautiful, painted wood veneer presentation box with elegant Shun logo in gold.
