The Shun Classic 3.25" Vegetable Knife is crafted employing traditional Japanese knife-making techniques that begin with an extraordinarily hard core of VG10 steel. With its straight, flat-cut edge, this petite blade excels with intricate details and precise mincing, as well as general paring, peeing, coring and trimming. Chop and mince smaller vegetables and herbs with ease, including garlic, broccoli, green beans and more.
Created utilizing the Kasumi method of making blades, sixteen layers of Damascus cladding reinforce the blade s strong core on each side. Resulting in a superbly strong and sharp edge, this process allows the blade to glide and slice more easily through foods during use. It also produces a lovely rippled effect upon the blade, known as suminigashi or ink pattern. The blade offers a razor-sharp edge and a full tang, delivering exceptional performance and edge retention in addition to optimal strength and balance.
With a secure fit in your palm, the innovative D-shape of the handle is constructed using resin-treated hardwood that comprises Shun' s ebony-black PakkaWood. Sanded and buffed into a smooth, glossy surface, the exquisite, contemporary handle provides superior durability and moisture resistance. For best results, hand-washing the Shun Classic 3.25" Vegetable Knife is recommended.
For more than a hundred years, the KAI corporation has produced fine blades from Seki City, Japan. A limited lifetime warranty backs the Shun Vegetable Knife, which also carries complimentary lifetime sharpening service provided by Shun.
