Shun classics are the origiginal 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 weight, Western handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.
For an all-around chef’s knife that does everything you would expect from this style of blade, you need to look no further than the Shun 6’’ Chef’s Knife. This blade has a pointed tip for slicing, it has a beautiful 16 layer body which has a Damascus look to the finish on the stainless steel, and there is a pakkawood handle on the end to offer great control. That handle features a D-shape while should allow you to hold on comfortably for as long as is needed to finish your prep.
A six-inch chef’s knife is slightly smaller than the frequently seen eight-inch models, but this is a knife that has plenty of heft to make its way through difficult foods. Whether you have smaller hands, have a small workspace, or just prefer a smaller blade on your chef’s knife, this Shun is sure to impress.
Propriertary VG-MAX cutting core. This high-end stainless steel forms the core of the entire blade, all the way to the cutting edge. VG-Max is extremely hard, which means Shun Classics can take an incredible edge and hold it longer.
Stainless Damascus Cladding - 34 micro-layers of steel on each side support the core, add stain / corrosion resistance and help food release from the blade.
Razor-sharp hand sharpened 16° angle cutting edge on each side for top performance; blade is double-bevel, flat ground for easy cutting and food release.
PakkaWood - Premium, resin-impregnated hardwood resists moisture and is strong and durable.
Asymmetrical - Traditional Japanese D-Shaped handle nestles into the curve of the right hand.
