Description: The Shun Classic mezzaluna shows Shun's ingenuity at its best. Mezzaluna, meaning "half-moon" in Italian, are chopping knives typically used for herbs, spices, garlic, and the like. The knife and its attending recessed cutting board is extremely effective as well as dramatic.
The san mai damascus blade reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times. A stainless steel VG-10 center core (Jigane) is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side. VG-10 "super steel" is composed of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon and vanadium, resulting in a long-lasting, high-performance edge with easy maintenance.
The handle is formed from Pakka wood, providing both strength and stability along with moisture resistance.
This mezzaluna is accompanied by a bamboo recessed chopping bowl, which conveniently displays the knife and is sure to be the highlight of any kitchen.
The blade measures approximately 6 inches in length and has a 2 1/2 inch blade height (3 2/3 inches from blade edge to the top of the handle. The cutting bowl measures approximately 9 1/2 square and 2 1/2 inches in height.
