Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Chef's Knives

Indispensable for everyday cutting tasks from chopping to slicing, Shun's chef's knife features a supersharp blade hollow-ground with indentations that reduce friction and minimize sticking. VG-10 "super steel" blade is clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of high-carbon steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade. Indentations along the blade reduce friction and keep slices from sticking. 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. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. Handcrafted in Japan.

Excellent Knife
March 2, 2014
Love this knife. It gets the job done. I will say that I did have the earlier incarnation of it last year and while sharp and a dream to handle, that blade was just too thin and within about 2 months the point chipped off and another nick made its way into the blade. I returned the defective knife to WS. The replacement knife seems to have a slighty thicker blade than before and this seems to be making the difference: the same sharpness without the fragility. Go for it!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Sharpness, Shape
