Crafted with traditional Japanese knife-making techniques, the Shun Classic 8" Carving Knife is made using an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel. Whether cutting slices paper-thin or thick and juicy, this knife is top choice for carving and slicing meat perfectly. Slice with precision in a single stroke, this long razor-sharp blade makes superbly clean cuts to retain more of the juices and flavor within the meat. The pointed, narrow tip is perfect for roast beef, turkey, even salmon, and provides the perfect companion to a holiday feast or large family meal.
With the hard core supported on each side by 16 layers of Damascus cladding, the blade of the Carving Knife is formed utilizing the Kasumi method of making blades. This process results in a lovely rippled pattern upon the blade and also allows the blade to more easily slice and slide through foods. Razor-sharp and offering a full tang, the blade delivers sublime performance and exceptional edge retention as well as the ultimate in strength and balance.
Fitting securely in your palm, the ingenious D-shaped handle of the Shun Classic 8" Carving Knife is crafted using Shun s proprietary resin-treated ebony-black PakkaWood. Sanded and buffed for a smooth, glossy surface, the handle resists moisture and provides superior durability within a contemporary and refined aesthetic. For best results, hand wash Shun cutlery.
