Shun DM0760 Classic 7" Asian Cook's Knife VG10 Blade PakkaWood Handles

Kai USA Shun

The Shun Classic 7" Asian Cook's Knife VG10 Blade PakkaWood Handles (DM0760)  The blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with 16 layers on either side of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision edge retention.

Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Behind the knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel

Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed -- similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing food from the blade.
