Our exclusive Shun Hiro collection features high-performance Eastern-style knives designed for speed, agility and balance as well as striking beauty. Handcrafted in Japan, this santoku has a compact 5 1/2" blade ideal for precision work and medium-sized cutting tasks. Eastern-inspired design with extremely thin, lightweight blade for fast and agile performance. The blade's core of SG-2 powdered steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 32 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel, for a total of 65 layers. SG-2 is an extremely fine-grained, dense and hard steel, which enables it to take and hold an exquisitely fine edge with long-lasting sharpness. The blade's hammered pattern ( tsuchime in Japanese) helps it pass easily through food without sticking. Handle is dark charcoal-colored Pakkawood with crimson striations and an inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest.

Influenced by the Zen principle of simplicity, the Shun Kanso collection was designed with only the indispensable elements in mind: high-performance steel, a razor-sharp edge, perfect balance and precision handling. Plainly put: with this santoku knife, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous. Blade of highly refined, high-carbon vanadium stainless steel takes and holds a razor-sharp edge. Indentations along the blade reduce friction and keep slices from sticking. Heritage-finish blade provides a rustic look that hides scratches and improves with age. Angled handle is made of dark tagayasan , an extremely dense wood traditionally used to make samurai sword handles. Handcrafted in Japan.

The Shun Blue Steel series was developed in partnership with award-winning chef Chris Cosentino, known for his “nose to tail” philosophy of using the whole animal. These traditional Japanese knives feature a core of blue steel – a fine-grained carbon steel favored by professional chefs for its blazing sharpness – encased between two layers of stainless steel. Larger than a paring knife and smaller than a chef's knife, this petty knife is ideal for medium-size tasks such as sectioning citrus, peeling and slicing potatoes, seeding peppers or portioning boneless meats. Japanese san mai construction features carbon steel between two layers of stainless steel, providing the ultra-sharpness of carbon steel with the easier maintenance and added corrosion resistance of stainless steel. Blue steel, hardened to 61 Rockwell, is a super-hard, fine-grained carbon steel known for taking and maintaining an extremely sharp edge (“blue” refers to the paper the raw steel comes wrapped in). Mirror-polished blade has a bead-blasted edge where the two steels meet, showcasing the layered construction. Traditional Japaneseoctagonal handle is made of gray PakkaWood.
