Whether you run a commercial kitchen or just enjoy cooking at home, you know a few good knives in your kitchen can make all the difference to your cooking. Shun cutlery is some of the finest available, and is a favorite of executive chefs and discriminating home cooks. The Japanese consider a blade more than just a mere tool; it is a way of life. Shun has been perfecting the lifestyle and art of knife making for over 100 years.
From boning and fillet to slicing and carving, there is a type of knife to fit most any cutting job in your kitchen. Shun Premier Knives, with the proprietary VG-MAX super steel core and hammered tsuchime finish are a combination of beauty and balance. The Shun Classic Knife collection takes advantage of the VG MAX steel's ability to hold and edge, and creates the signature look with a Damascus clad blade and D shaped PakkaWood ebony handle. The Shun Sora line features a VG 10 san mai cutting edge welded to an upper blade made from 420J stainless steel. With all lines, expert Japanese artisans work the cutting edge to a 16 degree double beveled, razor sharp edge that characterizes this brand. Shun offers a number of knife types in all collections. Whether you are looking for an all purpose chef's knife, a small paring knife or a classic meat cleaver there are Shun knives available in the type and style.
Once you decide which knives to buy, add Shun knife block to display them in all their glory and protect them at the same time. Take advantage of their classic build-a-block set and create your own personal ten knife set that best suits you and your kitchen. Maybe even add a pair of Shun Kitchen Shears to your list. Whichever Shun knives you choose, know you are not only buying high quality knives, but also exquisite handcrafted Japanese blades made from a 100 year old tradition.
