The amazing attention to balance and handle design combined with the lightweight blade makes this Shun Chef's knife an ideal choice for versatile slicing, chopping, dicing, and more. The Kai Shun knives are famous for their hand finished precision and beauty. 32 layers of special alloy create the beautiful damask patterns on Shun Knives, protecting it from rust and giving it an incredibly sharp edge. The inner layer is made from V-gold-10 steel. This steel is highly resistant to corrosion, extremely hard makes the blade incomparably and lastingly sharp. A truly beautiful and functional piece of kitchen equipment!

Damascus Construction.
The wavy pattern on our blades is called a Damascus look; what gives it that pattern are 16 layers of SUS410 High Carbon Stainless Steel pounded to 3/1000th of an inch and then "clad" on each side of the VG10 core. This combination of materials gives the blade strength, stain resistance, and incredible cutting performance.

The Cutting Edge
Shun's cutting edge is ground to an angle of 16 degrees making them extremely sharp; compare this to the best German knives which are only ground to only 22 degrees. The exotic Japanese steels used in the cutting core of our knives allow them to hold these razor sharp edges without the need for excessive re-sharpening.
