Each Shun knife is a single work of art
Shun professional cooking knives are made of newly developed rustfree Damascene steel - 32 layers each-, the inner part is made of Hitachi V-Gold Steel.This steel is extremely corrosion-resistant, very hard (62 % HRC, 1,0 % hydrocarbon, 1,5% cobalt) and this gives the blade its longlasting sharpness.
The handle is made of fine Pakka-wood and ergonomical designed. The handle’s cross-section shows the traditional japanese “chestnut-form”, which lies comfortable in the hand.
Each Shun-knife is an individual piece of work.
Each Shun-knife is whetted by hand and shows its individual and single character by process of improvement of the damascene streaks.
