Famous for their edge retention and sharpening ease, each Shun Classic knife has an inner core of VG-Max"super-steel" which includes additional carbon and chromium to improve strength, durability, wear, corrosion. Then each blade is clad with 16 layers of stainless Damascus on each side. The resulting pattern is called suminigashi or "ink pattern" after a traditional Japanese paper-decorating technique. While the patterned layers enhance the knife's beautify, they also add durability and stain resistance, and reduce friction when cutting. The handle is made of PakkaWood which is resin-impregnated natural wood.

The amazing attention to balance and handle design combined with the lightweight blade makes this 10-in. Chef's knife an ideal choice for the serious gourmet cook.

    • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS

    • This brand is touted by Alton Brown as the knives he has always hoped for but didn't know he wanted. Because my father enjoys a "real" knife in the kitchen, I purchased this for him as a Christmas gift. He can't cut up enough things! In comparison to this edge, all of the other knives they own seem extremely dull. In addition, the weight of the knife is fantastically balanced, and very easy to use, slicing through everything "like butter".

      The 10" blade isn't for the weak of heart - it does look huge. But I expect that the smaller chef's knives have the same superior performance.

      I recommend this product.

    • The 10 inch chef's knife is a high quality product. The knife is very sharp which makes it ideal for choppong and slicing. I have even found it to be an excellent slicer for ripe tomatoes. It is somewhat large so it would not be good for someone with small hands. It took me a couple of days to get used to the knife but now I reach for it every time.

      I recommend this product.

    • Excellent! I was worried about the price of this knife -- untill I used it! I had never paid more than $25 for a kitchen knife before, but now I know how right all those folks are, when they say you don't know what you're missing untill you prepare a meal with a really fine blade. I'll never hack at ingredients with cheap steel again!

    • I bought this knife for my husband, who is a Chef.
      He works in a busy restaurant and uses it everyday. He loves it! Shun knives are made with the highes quality. I have used it a few times and having a good quality sharp knife really makes it easier for novice cooks like me to have great knife skills. It is so easy to chop food with a good knife.

    • Beautiful

      Well balanced tool. The damacus steel blade is sharp and cuts like a dream. Now after having used it I want to warn those with large hands that the Japan styled handle feels small to me I wish I had bought the upgrade model with a larger handle for a few more dollars.

      I recommend this product.

    • 10-in. Chef's Knife by Shun

      For the first time I own a first class chef's knife made from the finest modern steel that handles perfectly and is not too heavy. Use a diamond sharpener and have no trouble refreshing the edge when needed as seldom as might be necessary.

      I recommend this product.

    • Here is my story: Bought some infomercial knives...then took a knife skills class. Should have taken the knife skills class first and I would have been better educated. Although the informercial knives were good (I rarely use them now), this knife is far superior. For my purposes this knife was superior because the unique handle shape fits my hand well and allows me superior knife control. This is a fantastic knife and you will get the most out of the knife with a hands on knife skills class. If you are just starting out and do not have a knife block then I recommend you buy a blade cover. I say this because the box this knife comes in, although beautiful, it is too large to fit in a drawer thus not practical for storage purposes. I hope this review helps!

      I recommend this product.
