Shun knives are known for their outstanding quality and distinctive look. The Shun Classic collection offers a wide assortment of traditional and modern blade shapes, making these knives a perfect fit for any kitchen. Each knife in the Shun Classic collection boasts all of the essential features that make Shun a top choice of professional chefs.
High performance Damascus-clad blades are made from a VG-MAX steel core, with 34 layers of steel on each side. The distinctive wavy pattern is formed as each blade is ground and bead-blasted from the spine to the razor-sharp edge, hand-sharpened to a 16-degree cutting angle.
VG-MAX stainless steel is proprietary to Shun. It includes a higher percentage of carbon for greater strength and durability. This alloy combines multiple other metals, including chromium, cobalt, vanadium, molybdenum and tungsten, to further improve wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and strength. Shun Classic knife blades are stronger, more durable, and stay sharper longer.
Shun Classic knife handles are made from ebony PakkaWood in a D-shape, designed to fit comfortably in your hand. Resin is added to genuine hardwood to create moisture-resistant, strong, and durable PakkaWood.
