Knife Description:

The Shun Classic Series of Chef‘s knives is one of the most comprehensive Damask Steel Series worldwide and highly appreciated by top class Professionals as well as ambitious Hobby Chefs. 
Nakiri Knife is is ideal for cleaning and chopping up herbs and vegetables, but is not suitable for chopping bones, despite its shape. Not often found in Western kitchens, the Nakiri’s flat blade is made for the efficient chopping of vegetables using a push/pull cutting style. The almost flat Blade contacts the cutting board all at once, minimizing the chance of accordion cutting. 
Hand-crafted in Japan, the Shun Classic Blades are thin and lightweight.
The VG-MAX "Super Steel" Blade is clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of High-Carbon Steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade. The exceedingly sharp Cutting Edge is long lasting and easy to maintain.
The Convex Cut of the Blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material. 
The durable laminated PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand and adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in the hand or at rest in the block.
This NSF-certified Knife meets the high-level safety standards for Professional Kitchens.
This classical and unique Japanese Santoku Knife is delivered in an attractive Cardboard Gift Box.

Knife should be Handwashed only!
