Shun Shun Blue Honesuki Knife

The Shun Blue Steel series was developed in partnership with award-winning chef Chris Cosentino, known for his ?nose to tail? philosophy of using the whole animal. These traditional Japanese knives feature a core of blue steel ? a fine-grai...ned carbon steel favored by professional chefs for its blazing sharpness ? that is encased between two layers of stainless steel. With its triangular blade, the honesuki is used for boning poultry, but it also excels at other meat-trimming tasks, such as frenching a rack of lamb. Japanese san mai construction features carbon steel between two layers of stainless steel, providing the ultra-sharpness of carbon steel with the easier maintenance and added corrosion resistance of stainless steel. Blue steel, hardened to 61 Rockwell, is a super-hard, fine-grained carbon steel known for taking and maintaining an extremely sharp edge (?blue? refers to the paper the raw steel comes wrapped in). Mirror-polished blade has a bead-blasted edge where the two steels meet, showcasing the layered construction. Traditional Japanese hexagonal handle is made of gray PakkaWood. 4 1/2"-long blade, 4 1/2"-long handle. 3.5 oz. Includes sheath. Knife handcrafted in Japan; sheath made in China. read more

The Shun Reserve slicing knife is a fantastic knife with a good length and a hollow ground blade. The Shun Reserve slicing knife h...as a 9.5" blade, on the longer side (they usually range from 8-10"). This length lets you slice a variety of items cleanly and easily, including roasts. The hollow ground blade of the Shun slicer reduces friction and sticking while slicing, so turkey or beef slices peel away cleanly. This is an heirloom knife that you'll be proud to pull out for special occasion dinners, or just routine usage at home. We were thrilled when we finally received our Shun Reserve knives. We've felt the absence of a SG2 metal knife since the Elite line was discontinued (SG2 is considered by many to be the best steel for use in kitchen knives. Why do we love these new Shun Reserve knives? Shun SG2 Super Gold ultra-premium "micro carbide" powder steel provides an extremely high performance knife, the core of the blade is SG2 steel The extremely dense and pure structure of the SG2 steel enables the knife to have and old an outstanding and durable cutting edge The outer layers of the blade are coated with 32 layers of stainless/nickel ladder-pattern Damascus for a gorgeous look, but also for easier cleaning and food release while cutting The Shun reserve feels "Rock Solid" in your hand due to it's sturdy blade combined with full tang construction and riveted handle The dark PakkaWood handle with burgundy striations are a mix of East meets West: An elegant, ergonomic and comfortable Western-style handle, but with Japanese touches like the inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest The thin blades are sharpened to a 16 degree angle (per side) for an incredibly sharp and high-performance knife 64 Rockwell (a measure of hardness) - a hard knife! The Shun Reserve series of knives are handcrafted (in more than 100 steps) in Seki City, Japan. Seki has been the heart of knife and sword making in Japan for centuries. KAI / Shun carry on the Japanese knife making tradition. To protect the beauty of any fine quality knife, we recommend hand washing and immediately towel-drying the knife. We (and Shun) don't recommend the dishwasher. read more
