With an impressively hard micro-carbide steel core, the Shun Reserve 10" Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife is crafted using the Japanese Kasumi tradition of knife-making. Reach for this fine knife for carving roast beef, turkey, even salmon, it makes the perfect companion for any holiday feast or large family meal. Slice long and precise portions easily and effortlessly using a single stroke of this elegant, 10-inch slicer. This long, narrow blade allows more juices and flavor to be retained by the superbly clean cuts of meat it creates, whether you’re slicing paper thin or thick and juicy. The hollow-ground indentations prevent food from sticking to the blade while slicing and assist the blade in gliding more smoothly through foods.
Sixteen shiny layers of nickel silver stainless support the strong, very fine-grained SG2 steel core of the Shun Reserve 10" Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife. Sharpened to a 16° flat ground cutting angle on each side, the resulting blade holds a superbly fine edge and delivers unsurpassed edge retention. With a full-tang and heftier blade for perfect Western-style balance, the Shun Reserve 10" Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife delivers both precision and power while displaying a beautifully graceful appearance.
Assembled utilizing lovely crimson-and-charcoal PakkaWood, Shun’s resin-treated hardwood, the handle of a Shun Reserve knife is a combination of the natural beauty of wood with the durability of plastic.

For the best edge retention, hand-washing the Shun Reserve 10" Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife is recommended.
