Collection: Shun Classic

In Japan, ”shun” (pronounced shoon) describes local, seasonal food at the peak of its flavour and freshness.
 With their extremely attractive Damascus steel, and ultra rugged Pakka wood handle, these knives are quite popular among professional chefs and home cook enthusiasts.
.
The VG10 core of the knife helps in keeping a straight and true blade when being used to cut. I also really enjoy sharpening these blades because of their awesome ability to take, and hold, an extremely sharp edge. The Damascus look comes from layering (up to 68 in some knives) different metal alloys together, than forging them into a single piece.
.
Pakka wood is a premium handle material made from layers of birch impregnated with resin. The resin makes it moisture resistant, strong and durable….super important for kitchen knives.
