For a chef’s knife that is particularly lightweight and highly
maneuverable, try the Shun Classic 6-in. Chef's Knife. Like all chef’s
knives, it is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting
tasks. While the 6-in. length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and
chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods, many
cooks prefer this smaller size for its sheer nimbleness. The wide blade
keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when
transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the
Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to
produce a very fine mince.
The Shun Classic 6-in. Chef's Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of
tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features
beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet
behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades
offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX
steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus
stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing
pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are
sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both
traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can
always find the right knife for the task.
