Description: The Shun wide Santoku is wonderful for those who prefer a taller blade. This style allows for greater finger clearance when chopping on a cutting board and ease in transferring of cut foods using the wide blade surface.
Shun Elite is an innovative combination of aesthetics and performance in kitchen cutlery. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan, the center of the ancient samurai tradition, Shun Elite’s stunning design is directly inspired by the artful aesthetics of samurai swords, down to the smallest detail.
The blade is made of a unique core of SG2, an exotic powdered steel that’s hardened to 64 Rockwell (compared to the 56-58 Rockwell of most European kitchen knives), resulting in an exceedingly sharp and smooth edge. This amazing metal means that Shun Elite knives stay sharp several times longer than comparable stainless cutlery. The knife is then clad with two layers of SUS410—a softer stainless steel that provides strength, flexibility and corrosion protection. The only thing more beautiful than the knife in your kitchen is the way it performs in your hand. Hand wash.
