These multifunctional kitchen shears produced by Shun and Kershaw seriously put all others to shame. Let's start with the blades on these heavy-duty shears.

The Shun Kershaw 8.5" Kitchen Shears come apart for easy cleaning, essential when dealing with raw meat. With an interlocking screw hold the blades together, keeping the optimal tension for heavy-duty cutting.

Shun item number 1120M.

Shun Technology Highlights

  • VG-10 stainless steel: Adds cobalt for strength and hardness, vanadium for superior edge retention.  The higher density allows the steel to be tempered to a higher Rockwell (60-62). Requires minimal care to avoid corrosion. Razor-sharp blade and phenomenal edge retention.

  • 16° Angle: Blade is sharpened to 16°. Ensures food is cut properly and precisely; no torn or bruised food so ingredients retain the same flavor and freshness.

  • PakkaWood® Handles: Resin-impregnated natural hardwood; waterproof, durable, comfortable; won't harbor bacteria.

  • Awards: Blade Magazine's Blade Show Kitchen Knife of the Year winner (2003 - Classic 8" Santoku, 2005 - Ken Onion 8" Chef's, 2006 - Elite 10" Chef's, 2007 - Kaji, 2008 - Shun Classic Line, 2010 Premier Line, 2011 - Fuji Line).

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "Shoon") have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years.  Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way.  It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
