The Shun Classic 12 Hollow-Ground Pro Slicing Knife is crafted using traditional Japanese knife-making methods, with an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel at the center of it. This long, elegant knife offers an impressive 12 blade - longer than most slicers - to enable cutting a slice of large roasts with a single pass while retaining flavorful juices within each slice. Hollow-ground indentations along the side of the blade help prevent food from sticking to the blade as you slice and carve, while the rounded tip lets the blade keep full contact with delicate meats while avoiding tearing. An excellent choice for slicing salmon and other fish, as well as a variety of meats.
The strong core of the Shun Classic 12 Hollow-Ground Pro Slicing Knife supported by thirty-two layers of Damascus cladding - sixteen layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel on each side. Shun cutlery is skillfully created using the Japanese Kasumi technique of making blades, a method that results in a blade that slices and glides more effortlessly through foods, resists stains and rust, and exhibits a stunning, rippled motif known as suminigashi or ink pattern. The Shun Classic 6 Boning/Fillet Knife offers a razor-sharp blade and full tang for remarkable performance and edge retention, as well as exceptional strength and balance.
