Shun Classic knives combine traditional Japanese style with the superb performance of Damascus steel and the elegance of ebony PakkaWood handles. Damascus steel blades are known for being tough and resistant to shattering, as well as their capability of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge. Pakkawood is constructed of carefully selected foreign and domestic hardwood veneers which undergo a process that creates multiple fused layers of treated hardwoods, making a weather, bacteria and moisture resistant handle that is dimensionally stable. This knife features full-tang construction for added strength and balance. The 5 1/2-inch blade on this Santoku knife gives you better control over slicing and chopping fruits and vegetables. The blade design reduces blade-to-food sticking, making prep time quicker, and the balance point between the handle and blade enhances precision. The unique combination of a VG-10 stainless steel cutting core and 32 layers of Damascus steel creates an incredibly sharp, strong blade with unmatched edge retention. The D-shaped handle is designed to fit perfectly into the curve of your grip for a comfortable hold, and the stainless steel accents add a unique finishing touch. Each Shun Classic blade features the Shun logo emblazoned onto the side, and should be hand washed to preserve the quality.

Things We Love:
Shun's Classic collection offers a tasteful, contemporary line of razor sharp kitchen knives that you are sure to use for years to come. We love the look of the Damascus clad blades which are not only stylish, but also stain and corrosion resistant. The D-shaped PakkaWood handles fit smoothly into our hands, and the ebony color complements the polished blades nicely. We love Shun's use of their unique VG-MAX steel in the core of these knives, which allow them to have a long-lasting, razor sharp blade. The double-beveled edge on these knives is hand ground to a 16 degree angle on each side for precision cutting without worry. All the knives in the Classic collection feature a full-tang handle and are perfectly balanced for effortless use. This collection contains a wide assortment of traditional and modern blade designs so you can always find the right knife for your task.
Things To Consider:
The D-shaped handles are designed to fit perfectly into your right hand. Many people can still use these knives with their left hand without a problem, and certain knives in the collection can be ordered in a left-handed grip. If this is a concern for you we recommend that you check out Shun's Premier and Reserve lines, which feature ambidextrous handles.
