  • 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).

Shun Classic Series Knives

Shun Classic Series Features

Shun’s Classic Series offers the widest assortment of traditional Japanese and European blade shapes and contemporary designs. At first glance, you’ll notice instantly the beautiful waved pattern on the blade which resembles a combination of tree-rings and ripples in water. This form of Kasumi-style knife making similar to pattern Damascus, or in Japanese suminigashi (“ink pattern”), is not only visually appealing but actually allows the blade to slide through food easier. This variation of pattern Damascus is formed by folding, welding, grinding, and polishing 32 layers (16 per side) of softer steel (SUS410/SUS431) that protect and support the VG-10 stainless steel core. The D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handle fits perfectly in the hand and stabilizes the blade to prevent turning.
About Shun

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.
