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 7-in. Classic Hollow Ground Knife is desired for its ability to glide through everything from dense, starchy foods, such as squash to delicate tomatoes. It's balance and weight is similar to a chef's knife combined with hollow pockets of space on the blade allows food to release easily without affecting the precision of the slice.

Features and Benefits:
  • Proprietary VG-MAX Cutting Core
  • Damascus Clad, SUS410/SUS431 Stainless Steel
  • 69-Layer Construction
  • 16 degree cutting angle each side, flat ground
  • D-Shaped ebony PakkaWood Handles
  • Full composite tang
  • Widest variety of traditional and innovative blade shapes

    • Outstanding knife. I have thrown away my chef's knife. Great balance and blade control. Highly recommended!

      I do a lot of cooking for large church groups (100+), and this knife will be in my hand from now on.

      I recommend this product.

    • Without a doubt, this is the best knife I have ever owned. I have several Wusthof knives, and this knife started out sharper and stays sharper. This makes it so much easier to control, from chopping garlic to thinly slicing tomatoes. I've been giving out these knives as housewarming gifts to all of my friends.

      I recommend this product.

    • Like butter!

      This is our 2nd Shun (the other is the 6 inch w/ offset handle) and once again we're extremely pleased with its performance. The weight is well balanced. The blade glides through meat, cheese, veggies, etc like butter- with little effort. The only thing to watch is that the blade is extremely sharp and if you're careless it's easy to cut yourself (learned firsthand!)

      I recommend this product.

    • Highly Versatile

      The Shun santoku is a remarkably versatile knife that almost eliminates the need for a heavier chef's knife. The edge is razor sharp, as one would expect from a Japanese knife and the handle ideal for smaller hands. If you're used to German knives the smaller bolster may take a while to get used to, but I think it actually forces you to hold the knife properly. I have a three year old Shun chef's knife that has been consistently honed and is finally in need of professional sharpening, so I anticipate the santoku will be similarly durable. Remember that it pays to get Japanese knives sharpened by someone who really knows what they're doing because of the possibility of damaging the blade angle. I sharpen my own German knives with a wet stone, but would never do the same to the Shuns. Overall: highly recommended for almost any cutting job, especially if you have smaller hands.

      Got this as a birthday gift to my husband and he's loving it!
      He's working in two hotels as a chef. I'm glad I picked this out for him.

    • All the Kitchen Knife You Need

      I purchased this knife for my daughter and husband, both of whom are avid kitchen chefs. My daughter is actually an amazing cook who I believe should be on Top Chef! My daughter wrote me an email to say she loves the knife and she never sliced a carrot so quickly and effortlessly. I used my husband's knife for slicing chicken breasts into cutlets and the knife glided through the meat effortlessly. One word of caution: as my husband was opening his new knife on Christmas morning he was having difficulty with the plastic packaging and the knife slipped out and took a nice little slice of his finger. I still can't figure out quite how he managed that, but you get the point. The knife is sharp! I think this knife is a very good quality knife and an excellent addition to the kitchen. Its design makes it a good choice for cutting vegetables or slicing meats. I highly recommend it.

      I recommend this product.
