Traditional Japanese knife-making methods are employed to construct the Shun Classic 6” Chef’s Knife with Reverse Grip, beginning with an impressively hard core of VG10 steel. This versatile blade excels with chopping, dicing, slicing and mincing foods of all kinds. Its compact 6” length is perfect for small-to-medium sized vegetables, fruits, meats and herbs. The wide blade provides plenty of clearance to keep your knuckles away from the cutting board. This blade’s curved belly allows for an easy rocking motion for fine mincing of herbs and smaller vegetables.
The hard core of the Shun Classic 6” Chef’s Knife with Reverse Grip is skillfully formed using the Kasumi process of making blades, supported on each side by 16 layers of Damascus cladding. An attractive rippled effect across the blade results from this method that also allows the blade to glide and slice more easily through foods. The razor-sharp blade offers exemplary performance and edge retention, while the full composite tang delivers noteworthy strength and balance.
Fabricated utilizing resin-treated hardwood, Shun’s ebony-black PakkaWood becomes the D-shaped handle that fits securely and naturally in your palm. To satisfy the needs of left-handed use, the D-shaped handle is reversed on this knife. Sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy appearance, the handle offers exceptional durability and moisture resistance. The Shun Classic 6” Chef’s Knife with Reverse Grip exhibits a refined, contemporary aesthetic and should be hand-washed for best edge retention.
