Shun Classic DM0723 Professional Cutlery - Chef's Knife DM0723

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.

  • VG-10 stainless steel "core", clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon steel on each side, producing a blade of 33 layers.
  • Handle Material: ebony black PakkaWood, impregnated with a waterproof resin.
  • Blade Length: 6.0"
  • Made In: Japan

    The Shun Classic 6-inch Chef's Knife

    Posted by Bill Prindle on Sep 28th 2019

    I purchased the Shun Classic 6-inch Chef's Knife a few weeks after I bought the 4-inch paring knife. The paring knife showed me how effortless cutting up vegetables and fruits can be, even slicing French bread is cleaner and easier than using a serrated bread knife. But I needed a bigger blade for chopping up onion and garlic and such so I bought the 6-inch chef's knife. Of course the blade is longer but it is also deeper and more curved which allowed for a very easy motion when chopping. The handle design is particularly comfortable to hold. And yes, it is remarkably sharp and needs respect and some care in this regard. As for sharpening, it requires a 16-degree angle, which is nearly impossible to do without using a higher end sharpening system like Wicked Edge. But if you're already springing for this brand of knife, why wouldn't you want to keep it as sharp as the day you first used it? All in all, worth every penny and a joy to use.
