With exceptionally hard VG10 steel at its core, the Shun Classic 8 Chef s Knife with Reverse Grip is produced utilizing traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. This multi-purpose knife is exceptionally adept at chopping, slicing, dicing and mincing medium-sized foods of all kinds. As you wield it on fruits, vegetables, and meats, the wide blade has plenty of clearance to keep your knuckles away from the cutting board. The curved edge provides for an effortless rocking motion when mincing herbs and smaller vegetables finely.
Crafted employing the Kasumi method of making blades, sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side support the blade s impressively strong core. Leaving a lovely rippled pattern upon the blade, this process allows the blade to more easily glide through foods during use and also results in a superbly strong and sharp edge. With a full tang and razor-sharp edge, the blade delivers exceptional strength and balance as well as splendid performance and optimal edge retention.
Using Shun s proprietary resin-treated ebony-black PakkaWood, the handle of the Shun Classic 8 Chef s Knife with Reverse Grip bears the innovative Shun D-shape that fits securely in your palm. Sanded and buffed into a smooth, glossy surface, the handle resists moisture while providing superior durability within its contemporary and refined look. Shun fine cutlery is best hand-washed.
