Shun Classic 6" Meat Cleaver


Cut through those chicken bones and separate ribs with ease using the Shun Classic 6 inch Meat Cleaver. This hefty blade works wonders when cutting through bulk amounts of meat, as well as large portions of vegetables. While it'd make sense to just use your versatile Chef's Knife, they've been known to be severely damaged after use on bone and joints. The flat sides of the blade can be used to tenderize meat or crush garlic, and the butt end as a pestle to pulverize seeds. Unlike the other Shun Classic knives, this cleaver is constructed with one piece of Japanese AUS8A Steel for ultimate toughness when you slam down this powerful tool. Handcrafted in Japan. Lifetime Warranty. Shun item number DM0767.

Shun Technology Highlights

  • AUS8A stainless steel: Superior flexibility and toughness.

  • 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.
