The Shun Reserve 8" Chef’s Knife is crafted using the Japanese Kasumi tradition of knife-making into a Western-style construction, starting with an impressively hard micro-carbide steel core. This exceptionally versatile knife is perfect for medium-sized chopping, slicing, dicing and mincing tasks involving foods of all kinds. Wield this wide blade on fruits, vegetables, and meats, your knuckles are kept far away from the cutting board. The blade’s curved belly enables an effortless rocking motion when mincing herbs and smaller vegetables into a fine consistency.
The strong, very fine-grained SG2 steel core of the Shun Reserve 8" Chef’s Knife is supported by sixteen shiny layers of nickel silver stainless on each side. The resulting blade is sharpened to a 16˚ flat ground cutting angle each side, holding a very fine edge and delivering matchless edge retention. The Shun Reserve 8" Chef’s Knife features a full-tang and heftier blade for perfect balance, for a beautifully graceful visage that provides both precision and power.
Shun Reserve knife handles are assembled using crimson-and-charcoal PakkaWood, Shun’s resin-treated hardwood. PakkaWood combines the natural beauty of wood with the durability of plastic to offer uncommon moisture resistance and enduring strength. The contoured handle nestles comfortably within the grip of your hand, whether used left- or right-handed, and is fastened with triple rivets for secure assembly. For the best edge retention, the Shun Reserve 8" Chef’s Knife should ideally be hand-washed.
