Shun Kaji Hollow-Ground Chef's Knife

From our premium Kaji line by Shun, this hollow-ground chef's knife is indispensable for chopping, dicing, mincing and slicing fruits and vegetables. Crafted in Japan, its strong, razor-sharp blade merges new technology and centuries-old handcrafting traditions, ensuring impeccable performance time after time. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade reduce friction and minimize sticking for exceptional release of everything from summer tomatoes to hard cheeses. 65-layer blade features a premium SG-2 powdered steel cutting core clad in 64 layers of forged nickel/stainless steel Damascus. Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword-making techniques, the blade's construction creates a supersharp cutting edge. Handle is made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.

Indespensible Kitchen Knife
February 9, 2016
Finally decided to upgrade the kitchen knife assortment into 4 premium quality knives w/a wide range of utility. This knife is quickly becoming my favorite of all! My hands are small, so the size is perfect. Love the thin, extremely sharp blade & its design that effortlessly glides through anything cut. Know slicing creole tomatoes this season will be a breeze! This knife is a work of art, from it's dark wooden handle to the beautifully shaped & etched blade. Prepwork is actually fun now. Shun - how did I ever live without you?!
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Shape, Quality, Size, Weight, Balance, Easy to Store, Sharpness

Way Sharp, decent handle
June 12, 2014
The balance on this knife is excellent. The blade glides through most everything. I have large hands, and the handle seems somewhat small for my large hands but that is not a criticism. I'll follow up on this review in a few months to let you know if the size of the handle affects the comfort. So far, so good.
Pros: Quality, Sharpness
Cons: Size
