KAI Shun 5 Millionth Anniversary Knife
Today, nearly 5 million razor-sharp Shun knives are on the job in millions of kitchens throughout the world. Nearly 5 million Shuns are inspiring home cooks to new creative heights and helping people make healthy and delicious food for the whole family. Nearly 5 millions Shuns are helping professional chefs do their Best. Work. Ever.
Like all the Shuns before it, handcrafted in a process that takes at least 100 individual steps. Hand-finished to perfection, then hand-sharpened on an authentic Japanese hiramae, a type of large, horizontal sharpening wheel. And like all Shuns before it, it will come from Japan, a nation legendary for the quality of its blades, and from Kai Corporation, a company with a more-than-100-year history of making the very finest in kitchen cutlery. We think our 5 millionth Shun is worth celebrating.
Shun Tsuyu is a special high spec model with sharp cutting edge and durability, is made from nickel Damascus stainless with 64 layers and the core is made from high hardness powder steel. By using a special metal processing technology called “etching” to the blade, it gives a fine pattern that imitates “water’s dew” with beautiful design.
The easy-to-grip D-shaped handle is highly durable. It was finished by using the red-black plywood material which is the color of “red” and “black” associated with celebrations.
In addition, “Shun Tsuyu” which is the final of the anniversary model is used the limited logo to celebrate the achievement of 5 million knives sold.
