Shun Classic From KAI Made in Japan
The Shun Classic series combines centuries-old Japanese Samurai blacksmiths with today's modern and sophisticated manufacturing processes The result is a tremendously high-quality Damascus knife range, engineered right down to the smallest detail and designed to always retain sharpness. The knives are therefore ideally suited for professional use. The Shun Classic blades are beautiful to look at because of the characteristic, semi-mat pattern of the Damascus steel composite of 32 layers. Combined with the elegant, slim tapered handle in black pakkawood, the result is an overall aesthetic design with quality and functionality at its core.
The Shun Classic Blade
VG MAX steel with a hardness of 61 (± 1) HRC forms the core of the entire blade right up to the edge. Sheathed in 32 layers of Damascus steel, the knife has an incomparable anatomy with a stable blade that, due to these two components, is both hard and flexible at the same time. The Shun Classic blades have a double-sided edge.
The Shun Classic Handle
The slim handle made of durable pakkawood is fashioned in a traditional Japanese chestnut shape. High quality resins added to the wood make the material particularly robust and resistant to moisture. Its typical chestnut shape ensures a comfortable and secure grip when cutting, thanks to a slight angle on the right-hand side. The integrated tang provides stability and balance.
