The Shun Classic series features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun Classic'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.

Cutting Edge: Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade
Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers each side (69 total including core) stainless steel Damascus cladding

Handle: D-shaped ebony PakkaWood®

Also available is the Shun Premier series:

Shun Premier calls to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan yet offers performance born from the latest advances in knife design and technology. Shun Premier blades are thinner and lighter for fast and agile handling, while the blade design - with wide weight distribution from the tip to end cap - ensures stability and strength.

Shun Premier blades are made of VG-MAX steel, clad with stainless Damascus. Where the steels meet, an attractive wavy line called a hamon is formed. Premier blades are ground to a quick taper edge that helps move food away from the blade quickly. The beautiful hand-hammered finish - tsuchime (tsoo-CHEE-may) in Japanese - also improves food release when cutting. The two-position handle, in rich walnut PakkaWood, offers a trigger grip for pull cuts as well as the perfect balance point for a pinch grip.

Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers (69 total including core) stainless steel Damascus cladding
Hardness: 60 HRC
