Features & Highlights
- Many Shun cutlery lines are characterized by the beautiful Damascus on the blades. Shun´s Damascus is formed by layering different types of metal alloys together, then forging them into a single piece. The process-and the different characteristics of the layered metals-create the rippling patterns in you see on the blade.
- In Japanese, tsuchime (Tsoo-CHEE-may) simply means "hammered" and you will see actual hammer marks on a tsuchime-finished blade. This finish does two things: gives the knife a look that is reminiscent of the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan; and it creates tiny pockets of air that act as hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag and quickly release food from the blade.
- Because of the hard, premium steel from which Shun cutlery is made, the blades can be thinner, lighter, and sharper. A thinner edge cuts more easily by putting less stress on the edge-so fewer strokes do the job. Thinner edges are easier to control as well, making cutting smoother and, once again, relieving stress on the edge.
- Shun´s handcrafted Japanese knives are sharpened to a precise 16° angle on each side of the blade (for double-beveled blades, this means a comprehensive angle of 32°). For comparison´s sake, European-style blades are generally sharpened to 20-22° each side for a comprehensive cutting angle of 40-44°.
- Due to the premium-quality steel we use for the cutting core of our blades, Shun´s incredibly sharp edge will nevertheless last an incredibly long time before resharpening is needed. Experience shows that with Shun you get extremely sharp edges that last an extremely long time.
