A beautiful knife that performs better than it looks. Classic lines with a slight clipped point provide a traditional profile when presenting your prize turkeys and roasts. Shun Classic knives are beautifully finished and constructed from only the finest materials: Stainless steel bolsters and buttcaps, Pakkawood resin handles, and VG-10 high-carbon stainless steel. The edge is hardened more than most knives, allowing for an extra sharp edge. The unique qualities of the steel keep the edge sharp without brittleness. The blade is clad with 16 layers of softer steel for durability, then etched to show the unique "damascus" finish. Shun Classic knives combine modern materials with classic design for truly masterful cutlery.
