Created from high carbon stainless steel with rust resistance, the blade of the Shun Classic 7 inch Rocking Knife is both sleek and strong. Shun took the power of a chef’s/cook’s knife and rounded the blade to make a unique and intelligent alteration. Similar to a mezzaluna in that it’s used to mince and chop herbs, shallots, garlic, vegetables, with ease and comfort, but is not limited to just that task as the previously mentioned tool is. The rocking knife can be used to finely chop different foods. It can remove the skin from fish or chicken with ease as well as helpful to cracking open garlic. Featuring a blade with a broad surface, it makes it easy to transfer food from chopping board to skillet or wok.
Because the rocking knife DM0764 is a tweaked design for the original chef’s knife, it still has all the qualities and uses that the standard chef’s knife does, like slicing and chopping. Because this is a handcrafted tool from Japan, it features a 16 degree angle for a much sharper design of blade. Offering a black laminated PakkaWood D-shaped handle, the 7” rocking knife provides its user with ultimate security and comfort in their grip. With the sophisticated look and feel of the Shun Classic Rocking Knife, paired with the lifetime warranty, you are sure to want to pass this instrument down for generations to come.
