Knife Description:
 
Hand-crafted in Japan, the Shun Sora Chef’s Knife is part of the exciting Shun Sora line that provides exceptional handcrafted Shun quality at an amazing price.
 
In Japan, the Sora Chef's Knife would be called a Gyuto. It's used for all the same purposes as a Chef's Knife — all-around food preparation. But the Sora Chef's has less curve than a Western Chef's Knife, which means it contacts the cutting board along more of its length, so more food is cut per slice. The Sora has a gentle roll off the tip compared to the large roll of a Western style knife, so the Sora needs to be lifted less, making cutting more efficient.

It is used for a wide variety of cutting tasks including slicing, dicing, and chopping fruits, vegetables, and more. With its curved belly, this Chef's Knife can also be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Once you try the Sora Chef's Knife, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.
 
Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 San Mai Cutting Edge with a Japanese 420J Stainless Steel Upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed—on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them.
 
The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese Sword Hamon Lines. While Sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the patented, textured PP/TPE Polymer Blend Handle Material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain.
 
This classical and unique Japanese Cook’s Knife is delivered in a Cardboard Gift Box.
