Preferred by chefs worldwide, Shun by Kershaw is kitchen cutlery for the ultimate knife connoisseur. With exceptionally good looks as well as razor-sharp cutting performance, these Shun knives by Kershaw have deep traditional roots. Manufactured in the famous samurai sword-making center of Seki City Japan, 700 Years of tradition has brought Kershaw cutlery to the edge of perfection.
Shun Classic is a stunningly beautiful line of cutlery featuring the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
The forged steel blade of the Shun knife is clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel and holds an incredibly sharp edge longer for easier edge maintenance.
The Shun Pro line features the design preferred by professional Japanese Chefs – a one-sided, beveled edge with a hollow-ground back.
The single bevel design means an incredibly sharp edge that’s easy to maintain. Further, the hollow-ground back creates an air pocket between the blade and the food being cut. The result is less sticking to the blade and less friction damage to the food.
The stainless steel bolster of the Shun knife is a unique offset design that enhances ergonomic qualities for the highest level of safety and control.
The Shun series of kitchen knives feature a unique “D” shaped PakkaWood handle which provides both function and beauty. The “D” shape offers maximum comfort and control while PakkaWood provides strength, stability and moisture resistance.
These expertly designed knives are easy to clean as well as dishwasher safe. With many different styles to choose from there is a Kershaw knife to satisfy any culinary genius.
