Shun Classic Professional Cutlery
This stunningly beautiful line of classic cutlery features the good looks and superb performance of Damascus steel, without any rust problems that you'll find with regular Damascus blades. Their excellent edge geometry reduces blade-to-food sticking, and also benefits the chef with faster prep times and less fatigue. The blades are crafted from a unique combination of VG-10 stainless steel that is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon steel on each side. The result is a 33-layer rust-free blade that is not only beautiful - but incredibly sharp and strong. This VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon, and Vanadium.
The Shun Classic series feature ebony-black PakkaWood handles, accented with stainless steel bolsters and end caps, that are as distinctive as their blades. Their uniqueness is their "D" shaped handles, which rest precisely in the curve of your fingers as they curl around the handle. This subtle feature, is not only clever, but extremely practical. They balance perfectly, with the balance point just ahead of where the handle sweeps out of the blade. The Shun Classic series is also NSF approved for commercial kitchens.
