About the Shun Classic 8" Chef's Knife
The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing all types of meals. The wide blade will keep your knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.
The Shun Classic 8-in. Chef's Knife is part of the Shun Classic line, which features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped Ebony PakkaWood handles. Behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a knife that is sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
