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.
