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.

An excellent starter piece if new to Shun, this 6-in Classic Chef's knife will be a kitchen staple that's hard to put down. Designed for chopping, dicing and mincing, the smaller-handed cook will find it's the perfect balance and size while still delivering precision results.

    • EXTEMELY SHARP

      Previously purchased the 4 inch Shun paring knife and really have enjoyed it. When the 6 inch Chef's Knife went on sale had to try it and it is definitely the sharpest knife I've ever used. Be extremely careful as this will slice through just about anything with extreme ease.

      I recommend this product.

    • The best knife I've got

      This knife is perfect for all of my cutting a chopping. The blade is VERY sharp and I find it to be the perfect size (not too short - not too long). I highly recommend it.

    • This knife not only has exceptional looks but it feels expertly balanced in hand. It is not too heavy nor too light. It slices like a dream and I own Kyocera, Henkels and Wustof so I am able to compare the feel of different knives in my hand. I plan on buying the 8-inch Kershaw Shun Classic for my next knife. You won't be disappointed!

    • this is quality you can see and feel, the sharpest edge of any knife I ever used including the top german steel, and I own both. I like the way you can use and sharpen the blade right up to hilt. at the first use it was my favorite I can see my self buying others in the future.
