Kai Shun Knives

Handcrafted in Seku, Japan, Kai Shun knives feature extra sharp blades and comfortable handles that provide excellent support and control.  Each Shun knife blade features a special VG-MAX cutting core that is clad each side with 34 ultra thin layers of high carbon stainless steel (total 69 layers). The Damascus style pattern emerges during the hand grinding process and is completed with tiny beads of glass being blasted at the steel to produce a stunning finish.

With a Rockwell hardness of 61, Kai Shun knives are extra strong with incredible hardness, allowing the blade to stay sharper for longer. The 16 degrees razor sharp edge creates exceptional cutting performance.
When they do need sharpening, the Kai Shun electric sharpener definitely gives the best result.
The compressed pakka wood handle is designed for excellent comfort & support.

NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens. 
Shun knives are provided with a limited lifetime warranty from manufacturing defects.
