Complete any home or professional kitchen with Shun Cutleryâs high-performance Classic 8-Inch Hollow-Ground Chefâs Knife. Transform everyday kitchen tasks into creative, enjoyable experiences with Shun. Premium-quality blade features Shunâs proprietary VG-MAX cutting core and 68 layers of beautiful Damascus cladding for a razor-sharp cutting edge with superior edge retention. Powerful, stainless steel blade blends into a handle of gorgeous, ebony PakkaWood, genuine hardwood with moisture-resistant resin. With hollow-ground indentations, the blade swiftly cuts fruits, vegetables and other foods with less resistance and helps food release more easily from the blade. Easily prepare food for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and other meals; and experience professional-grade results and presentation. Enjoy Shunâs combination of incredible design and amazing performance by adding the Classic 8-Inch Hollow-Ground Chefâs Knife to your cutlery collection.
A member of the stylish Shun Classic line, this multipurpose chefÂs knife comfortably handles any kitchen cutting need from chopping to mincing, dicing, and slicing. Featuring a blade measuring 8 inches in length, this tool finishes with a sharp point. Scalloped detailing along the knifeÂs cutting edge creates air pockets during use to prevent food from adhering to its sides and maximize cutting efficiency.
Leveraging a 90-year history of superior workmanship, Shun knives are precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Using technologically advanced processes, a VG-10 "super steel" core is clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus-look blade. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knifeÂs aesthetic appeal, it also prevents morsels from sticking and avoids crushing or damaging foods. Forming a comfortable D-shaped hold, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin comprise the unique ebony Pakkawood handle. A traditionally offset stainless-steel bolster protects knuckles while a steel end-cap finishes the piece. Although dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. The knife includes a lifetime warranty. -- Amy Arnold
From the manufacturer
Shun Classics are the original Shuns, the first Japanese-style knives to be made available to a wider audience in North America. Instead of heavy ponderous blades, Shun Classic blades are lighter with razor-sharp edges and crafted from advanced steel. Rather than weighty, Western handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.
With Shun Classic, you'll discover a wide selection of traditional blade shapes as well as unique shapes - so you can always find the right handcrafted knife for every kitchen task.
These traditional Japanese-style handles have a slight ridge on the right side, which fits into the curl of the fingers for a comfortable and secure grip. Viewed end-on, the shape resembles the capital letter "D". Pakkawood is waterproof, incredibly durable, and won't harbor bacteria.
Shun is Different
If you've never owned a Japanese knife before, you'll immediately notice how different a Shun feels in the hand. Shun is harder, lighter, and sharper. Sharpened to a steeper angle (16 degrees) with an edge that will hold longer, the Classic line is designed to cut in a smooth, slicing motion.
Shun proprietary VG-MAX cutting core is a high-end "super steel" that is extremely hard, enabling Shun Classic knives to take an incredible edge and hold it longer.
Stainless Damascus Cladding is made of 34 layers of stainless steel on each side of the blade, for a total of 69 layers. Classic's cladding supports the cutting core, adds stain and corrosion resistance, and looks elegant.
