Description

The Shun Classic 8" Western Cook’s Knife starts with an exceedingly hard core of VG10 steel and is masterfully created using traditional Japanese knife-making methods. This 8” chef’s knife represents the most popular Western blade in both style and length. With the 22˚ cutting angle preferred by many cooks, this multi-use blade excels at chopping, slicing, dicing and mincing fruit, vegetables, herbs and meat. The wide blade provides plenty of clearance to keep your knuckles away from the cutting board, and its curve is perfect for fine mincing using a rocking motion.


Embedded between a total of thirty-two layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel - sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side - the strong core of the Shun Classic 8" Western Cook’s Knife is created using the Japanese Kasumi technique of making blades. This method produces a blade that resists stains and rust, glides effortlessly through foods, and displays a lovely, rippled, ink-like pattern known as suminigashi. The Shun Classic 8" Western Cook’s Knife offers a full tang and a razor-sharp edge for superior strength and balance in addition to notable performance and edge retention.


The ebony-black Pakkawood handle merges the inherent beauty of wood with the sturdiness of plastic in the form of resin-treated hardwood handle that pleases the eye while delivering superior durability. Sanded and buffed to a glossy surface, the handle provides superb moisture resistance while its D-shape feels natural and secure nestled against your palm. The Shun Classic 8" Western Cook’s Knife is best if hand-washed for better edge retention.


The KAI corporation has been making high quality cutlery for over a hundred years in Seki City, Japan. The Shun Classic 8" Western Cook’s Knife carries a limited lifetime warranty and complimentary lifetime sharpening service provided by Shun.
