Starting as a notably hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 10” Chef’s Knife with Reverse Grip is crafted employing traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. This 10-inch blade delivers the heft and length needed for your large chopping and slicing chores. Dice, mince and cut up vegetables, fruits, meats and herbs with this versatile kitchen essential. The width of the blade keeps your knuckles well away from the cutting board while the edge’s curve makes for an effortless rocking motion with fine mincing and dicing of foods of all kinds.
Created utilizing the Kasumi method of fine blade-making, sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side reinforce the blade’s strong core. This process results in a superbly strong and sharp edge, and allows the blade to more easily glide through foods during use. It also leaves an eye-catching rippled pattern upon the blade known as suminigashi, or “ink pattern.” The blade has a razor-sharp edge and full tang, delivering optimum strength and balance as well as exceptional performance and splendid edge retention.
Shaped into the innovative Shun D-shape that fits securely in your palm, the handle of the Shun Classic 10” Chef’s Knife with Reverse Grip is constructed from extraordinary resin-treated ebony-black PakkaWood. To meet the needs of left-handed use, the D-shaped handle is reversed on this knife. Sanded and buffed for a smooth, glossy finish, the refined and contemporary handle resists moisture while providing superior durability. Shun cutlery should be hand-washed for best edge retention.
