The Shun Hiro collection features high-performance Eastern-style knives designed for speed, agility and balance, as well as striking beauty. A cutting core of ultra-premium SG-2 steel gives them a super-sharp, lasting edge, while hammered blades help keep food from sticking for fast, efficient use. Handcrafted in Japan, this santoku combines the benefits of a chef's knife and a cleaver, making it indispensable for chopping, slicing and dicing. 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 hammered pattern ( tsuchime in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking. Contoured, ambidextrous handle is designed for ultimate comfort and control. Handle is dark charcoal-colored PakkaWood with crimson striations and an inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest. Mirror-polished nickel silver bolster and end cap. Made in Japan.
Staying true to its Asian origins, the Shun Pro collection features the classic single-bevel blades and distinct styling that define traditional Japanese cutlery. Originally known as a “fish knife,” the deba is equally adept at performing precision cuts on chicken, beef and other meats. The traditional single-bevel, scalpel-like edge is the favored style for preparing Asian cuisine, including sushi and sashimi. The mirror-polished, ultra sharp cutting edge ensures the blade glides through delicate foods without bruising or tearing to retain maximum flavor. Graffiti etching on the blade's sides give this collection an elegant, contemporary look. The blade is constructed of high-carbon VG-10 “super steel” designed for maximum strength and edge retention. Premium D-shaped PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably into the curves of the palm, offering control and a secure grip. An extra-wide “shinogi,” or blade bevel, makes sharpening with whetstone nearly effortless. Shun knives reflect the craftsmanship of a centuries-old tradition of Japanese knifemaking, with an eye towards the latest innovations in cutlery design. Handcrafted in Japan.
