General Information

The ancient traditions of Japanese samurai sword-making, meet today's state-of-the-art steel technology in the new Shun Elite series of knives by Kai. Like the traditional samurai sword blade, Shun Elite is extremely sharp and flexible; ideal for food preparation. But unlike the traditional blade, Shun Elite features a center layer of a new type of "super steel" called SG-2. This new "super steel" starts out in a powdered form. Under heat and pressure it combines to make a much denser alloy which in turn creates the finest molecular structure used in knife making today. The result is an edge that will hold longer than any other steel on the market. Even better for busy chefs. Shun Elite's superior edge will respond quickly and easily to a honing steel when it needs a quick touchup. For added strength and protection, the SG-2 is clade between two outer layers of quality 410A stainless steel for beauty and tireless handling. Shun Elite features an ergonomic handle of handsome PakkaWood[emoji]174[/emoji]. This premium-quality hardwood laminate combines the beauty and feel of hardwoods with the strength and performance of plastic. Inlaid with a traditional symbol, the handle is also enhanced by thin rings of brass and copper separating it from the bolster. With this kind of beauty and performance, Shun Elite will soon become the knife chefs reach for again and again.

Pros: never loses it's edge
Cons: expensive
This knife is so so nice. I got it some time around Christmas - doing personal shopping when I should have been doing Christmas shopping- and I use it frequently. I cook professionally, so you can imagine how much I use it....maybe an hour every day but Monday. I still haven't had to sharpen it or even use a honing steel on it and it's still the the sharpest steel blade I own. This knife is also beautiful. I sometimes consider it my show piece, although it's size can lead laymen to become unimpressed .It's super expensive though. Shuns are cool, but if you don't want to spend too much, buy a Mac or some other Japanese steel.
