The KAI Shun 14cm Santoku Knife

The slim handle made of durable pakkawood is fashioned in a traditional Japanese chestnut shape. High quality resins added to the wood make the material particularly resilient and resistant to moisture. Its typical chestnut shape ensures a comfortable and secure grip whilst cutting, thanks to a small rim on its right side. The integrated tang boosts stability and balance.

VG MAX steel with a hardness of 61 (±1) HRC forms the entire blade's core right up to its edge. Sheathed in 32 layers of Damascus steel, the knife embodies a peerless anatomy paired with a resilient blade that is both hard and flexible at once due to its hybrid composition. The Shun Classic blades have a double-sided edge.

  • Premium Series
  • Handmade in Japan
  • Rockwell Hardness 61 (±1)
  • Pakkawood Handle
  • VG-Max core steel with 32 damascus layers on each side

The Shun Classic Series unites centuries-old Japanese Samurai blacksmithing with today's modern and technically-sophisticated manufacturing processes. The result is an exceedingly high-quality range of Damascus knives, engineered with attention to the most minute details and designed to always retain its sharpness. The knives are therefore ideally suited for professional use. The Shun Classic blades are gorgeous to look at due to the distinctive semigloss pattern exhibited by the Damascus steel composite comprising 32 layers. This combination with the elegant, tapering handle made of black pakkawood, results in an overall aesthetic design that puts quality and functionality at its core.
