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: edge retention
My wife was kind enough to get this for me as a Christmas gift, otherwise I probably wouldn't have it b/c of the cost.  Having used it for a few months, it makes my shun classics look like fisher- price toys.  The steel (SG2) is far superior to the VG10, overall sharpness and edge retention, and it's surprisingly light.  The handle is thicker than that of the classics, which took some getting used to (calluses on my hand had to move) but in the end it is more comfortable. I spend long days holding a knife and this one is a pleasure to use.  This knife is a truly a functioning work of art and I would suggest it to anyone who puts in the hours holding a blade.
