Handcrafted in Seki, Japan, Kai Shun knives feature extra sharp Damascus style blades and comfortable handles that provide excellent support and control. Shun blades are designed using VG-MAX hardened Japanese steel cutting core that is enveloped with 34 ultra-thin layers of high carbon stainless steel. With a Rockwell hardness of 61, Kai Shun knives are extra strong with incredible hardness, allowing the blade to stay sharper for longer. The Premier range have beautifully hand-hammered blades to improve food release and are designed with walnut coloured pakka wood handles. The Classic range have D-shaped handles designed specifically for right or left-handed users with compressed pakka wood handles.
