Shun Classic 8-Inch Chef's Knife
Measures approximately 12 by 2 inches; dishwasher-safe; limited lifetime warranty
The Shun series of chef‘s knives is one of the most comprehensive damask steel series worldwide and highly appreciated by top class professionals as well as ambitious hobby chefs. Shun professional chef’s knives are made from specific stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The core layer is made from V-Gold-10-steel. This is an extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and corrosion-resistant steel that gives the blade a sharpness that is second to none. The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material. This sharpness together with the well-balanced weight of the knife makes for tireless work.
Pros - Very sharp, slices with ease lifetime warranty with Free sharpening.?
Cons - Short lifespan, tiny v shaped grooves form quickly on the blade, sending the knives to the Company in Utah is a hassle. Now they charge for it!
These knives are wonderful, very nice to use, fits great in the hand but, the one con is the tiny v grooves that show up on the specially honed blades! ALL of my sets of Shun knives have this problem.
They must be sharpened often. Use only the proper cutting board & hand wash always & they will treat you to sliced heaven for a long while.
