Description: The Chef's Knife is the classic all-purpose knife in the kitchen. A nice rocking blade makes for easy chopping, while a sharp tip allows for detailed work. Shun created the 8 inch Western Chef's Knife with a wider 22 degree angle. This wider angle provides additional strength for more heavy-use tasks, such as cutting winter squash or large heads of cabbage. This knife also offers more finger clearance for use over a cutting board while chopping.
The stunningly beautiful Shun line of kitchen cutlery is forged by Kai in Japan and distributed through Kershaw. 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. 'D' shape Black Pakkawood handles provide beauty and function. The 'D' shape is designed for right handed users and provides maximum comfort and control. Pakkawood provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance.
