Shun’s Classic line are outstandingly sharp, durable and corrosion resistant as well as beautiful. Their razor-sharp blades are made from Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel and clad with Damascus stainless steel which is ground and bead-blasted, providing incredible edge retention.
When first introduced, the Hollow-Ground Santoku was named “Kitchen Knife of the Year” by Blade magazine. The Santoku is used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen; hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through the food more easily.
Every Shun knife is handmade by skilled specialists in the illustrious Kai factories, where a 100-year-old tradition combined with the newest technology and advanced materials makes every knife a functional and durable work of art. Shun offer free lifetime sharpening and a lifetime warranty; if you take care of them, these knives will be the pride and joy of your kitchen for a lifetime.
