Shun Classic Asian Chef's Knife

Known in Japan as a gyuto, this light, nimble knife is ideal for slicing meat and fish, and it performs beautifully on vegetables too. The blade is thinner than a traditional chef's knife but still offers plenty of knuckle clearance on the cutting board. Shun knives are produced by Japan's leading blade manufacturer, reflecting the craftsmanship of a centuries-old tradition of knife making. All-purpose Asian-style chef's knife with thin, lightweight blade. Excels for a full range of chopping, slicing and dicing tasks. VG-Max "super steel" blades are clad on each side with 69 microthin layers of stainless steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade. Exceedingly sharp cutting edge is long-lasting and easy to maintain. Durable PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand. Handcrafted in Japan.
