Shun

The Shun chefs knife series is one of the world’s most extensive knife series made of damask steel. It is well received among the cooking elite and ambitious hobby chefs. Shun professional chef’s knives are made from a newly developed stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The inner layer is made from V-gold-10 steel. This steel is highly resistant to corrosion, extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and the reason for the blade being incomparably and lastingly sharp. more info…

Shun Bread Knife 22.5cm

YOUR BREAD DESERVES THIS KNIFE

After a chef’s knife and a paring knife, some cooks say that the knife they most can’t live without is their bread knife. It’s a crime to ruin a fresh loaf of bread by smashing it beneath the blade of a dull knife. The wide, “low frequency” serrations on the Shun Classic Bread Knife are not only razor-sharp, but they do a much better job slicing any type of bread than a straight-edged knife. The undulating serrations provide the power you need to gently saw through a crusty loaf without tearing the tender interior. And it works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries. Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully crusty, just gently saw back and forth to cut off the perfect slice of bread with nary an unsightly rip or tear.

The Shun Classic Bread Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

Shun Cooks Knife 20cm

YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND IN THE KITCHEN

If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.

Shun Cooks Knife 25cm

SHUN'S LONGEST CHEF'S KNIFE

Some cooks simply prefer a longer chef’s knife. For them, we offer the Shun Classic 10-inch Chef's Knife. The longer blade provides additional cutting leverage and is especially handy when it comes to cutting larger foods. That said, it is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks—slicing, dicing, and chopping just about anything in the kitchen. The longer blade also enables you to cut more product with fewer strokes—for example, cutting several carrots at once instead of just one. This is especially important for the productivity of commercial kitchens. Even though this is a larger knife, Shun Classic’s thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.

Shun Cooks Knife Scalloped Edge 20cm

THE SHUN CLASSIC CHEF'S KNIFE—WITH HOLLOW-GROUNDS

If you have only one kitchen knife, the Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is the one to have. This one is extra-special because of the hollow-ground indentations on the side of the blade. They create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut. If you’ve had problems with sticking, try a hollow-ground blade. Otherwise, use the Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife as you would any other chef’s knife—for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

The Shun Classic 8-in. Hollow-Ground Chef's Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery.

Shun Gokujo Boning/Filleting Knife 15cm

A RIGID BONING AND FILLET KNIFE WITH A RAZOR-SHARP EDGE

The Shun Classic Boning/Fillet is adept at these two key kitchen chores. For boning, the narrow, sharp, curved blade gets in close to the bone, making it easy to separate meat from bone. Even fibrous tissue is no match for Shun's extremely sharp edge. It’s perfect for trimming the silver skin from a tenderloin or roast or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces the drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy. When it comes to filleting fish, the blade's six-inch length is just right to glide through the body of the fish, quickly removing bones and skin. The D-shaped handle provides a secure grip for excellent control.

The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles.
