Starting with an impressively hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 4" Citrus Knife is skillfully crafted using traditional Japanese knife-making methods. This exquisite serrated blade is perfect to quickly peel oranges, grapefruit, limes, lemons and more. The razor sharp edge excels for removing the bitter pith of the skin, and the unique blade tip is designed for ease in separating the fruit segments. Utilize this fine blade with confidence on citrus of all kinds.
Sandwiched between thirty-two layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel - sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side - the strong core of the Shun Classic 4" Citrus Knife is masterfully created using the Japanese Kasumi technique of making blades. This produces a blade that resists rust and stains, glides through foods with minimal effort, and displays a mesmerizing, rippled ink pattern known as suminigashi. With its full tang and razor-sharp edge, the Shun Classic 4" Citrus Knife delivers superior strength and balance in addition to its remarkable performance and edge retention.
Shun combines the durability of plastics with the inherent beauty of wood in their innovative ebony-black Pakkawood, treating hardwood with resin to create handles that are both durable and eye-appealing. The D-shape handle is sanded and buffed to a glossy finish, for superb moisture resistance and a natural and secure feel against your palm. For longer edge retention, the Shun Classic 4" Citrus Knife should be hand-washed.
