Classic // H.G. Chef's Knife // 8"
If you only have one kitchen knife, make it the Shun Classic 8” Chef’s Knife. The hollow-ground indentations on the side of the blade create small air pockets that reduce friction while cutting, so the knife glides through the cut. It’s perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium sized fruits, vegetables, and more! The curved belly makes for gentle rocking through fresh herbs or spices for a very fine mince.
The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles, along with razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
