Shun Classic DM0764 Professional Cutlery
The Shun Classic 7-in. Rocking Knife is the ideal tool for mincing herbs, garlic, shallots, or finely chopping a wide variety of foods, for example, tomatoes for sauces. It is an exceptional tool for mincing herbs to fully release their flavor. Similar to a mezzaluna, the cook rocks the deep-bellied blade across the cutting board to produce a fine mince. The extra-wide blade also serves as a convenient way to scoop up the minced food for easy transfer to the cooking pot or pan. The deep belly of the Shun Classic Rocking Knife also makes it an excellent tool for removing skin from chicken or fish. Shun’s razor-sharp edge makes the task fast and easy, too.
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.
