Crafted solely from pure, high-carbon VG10 stainless steel, the Shun Classic Pro 6.5” Deba exhibits a traditional Japanese knife design that functions as part cleaver, part chef’s knife. This fine, wide blade beheads and fillets fish, bones poultry, and cuts meat, making short work through small bones and skin. Nimble and precise with a gently curved belly, this blade excels with small mincing, dicing and chopping chores and other tasks where a chef’s knife typically dominates.
Knives of the Shun Classic Pro line offer traditional Japanese style blades, and are made using the intensive Honyaki method of knife-making. This difficult process delivers a scalpel-like edge, producing unsurpassed sharpness with a 16˚ angle. Exquisitely sharp blades that retain their edge for much longer than other knives result from this combination of the Honyaki method and VG10 steel. Shun Classic Pro blades display striking acid-etched graffiti designs that incorporate the Shun logo and differ with each blade style. Blade backs are slightly hollow-ground for quick and precise gliding through foods to prevent sticking, while the full tang provides optimum balance.
A resin-treated hardwood, Shun’s PakkaWood is used to construct the handle that combines the natural beauty of wood with the durability of polymer plastic. Shun’s D-shape, ebony-black handle fits securely and naturally against your palm. With the handle sanded and buffed to a smooth, shiny finish for superb durability and moisture resistance, the Shun Classic Pro 6.5” Deba presents a beautiful and extraordinary aesthetic. Hand-wash Shun cutlery for better edge retention.
