Traditional Japanese knife-making techniques are used to construct the Shun Classic 6" Chef's Knife, beginning with an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel. This versatile blade excels at chopping, dicing, slicing and mincing tasks with foods of all kinds. Its compact 6” length is perfect for small-to-medium sized fruits, vegetables, herbs and meats. The wide blade easily keeps your knuckles away from the cutting board. This blade allows for an easy rocking motion for fine mincing of herbs and smaller vegetables. .
With its hard core supported on each side by 16 layers of Damascus cladding, the blade is skillfully formed utilizing the Kasumi method of making blades. The process creates a mesmerizing rippled pattern across the blade and allows the blade to more easily glide through foods. The razor-sharp blade delivers exceptional performance and remarkable edge retention, while the full/composite tang offers supreme strength and balance.
Shun's ebony-black PakkaWood is fabricated from resin-treated hardwood to form the handle. Fitting securely and naturally in your palm with its inventive D-shape, the handle is sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy appearance, providing superior moisture resistance and durability. The Shun Classic Chef's Knife s offers a refined, contemporary aesthetic and should be hand-washed for best edge retention.
