Crafted from pure, high-carbon VG10 stainless steel, the Shun Classic Pro 8.25” Deba presents a traditional Japanese knife design. Functioning as part cleaver, part chef’s knife, this fine, wide blade makes short work through small bones and skin, beheading and filleting fish, boning poultry, and cutting meats. With a gently curved belly, this full-sized deba excels at the same tasks as a chef’s knife such as fine mincing, dicing and chopping of all kinds of food with precision and nimbleness.
Knives of the Shun Classic Pro line offer traditional Japanese style blades, and are created using the difficult Honyaki method of knife-making. This intensive process delivers a scalpel-like edge with unsurpassed sharpness and a 16˚ angle. The VG10 steel and the Honyaki method produces exquisitely sharp blades that retain their edge for much longer than other knives. Shun Classic Pro blades exhibit a striking acid-etched graffiti design that incorporates the Shun logo and differs with each blade style. A full tang provides optimum balance while the backs of the blades are slightly hollow-ground, granting quick and precise gliding through foods.
Shun’s PakkaWood is a resin-treated hardwood used to construct the handle, merging the natural beauty of wood with the durability of polymer plastic. Shun’s ebony-black D-shape handle fits naturally and securely within your palm. The handle is sanded and buffed to a smooth, shiny finish for superb durability and moisture resistance. The Shun Classic Pro 8.25” Deba presents a beautiful and extraordinary aesthetic, and is best if hand-washed for better edge retention.
