The KAI Shun White 15cm Utility Knife

In contrast to the dark handle of the Shun Classic series, the handle in the Japanese chestnut shape is made of ash-coloured pakkawood. Due to the treatment with high-quality resins, the handle is particularly resistant to moisture

The blade, ground on both sides, is made of VG MAX steel with a hardness of 61 (±1) HRC and is sheathed in 32 layers of Damascus steel. This combination ensures the long-lasting sharpness and durability of the blade.

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

The Shun Classic White series with its six selected blade shapes and bright ash wood coloured handle is now an integral element of the Shun Classic series. The light coloured version also combines centuries-old Japanese Samurai blacksmithing with modern and sophisticated manufacturing processes. The result are kitchen knives, which have been perfected to the smallest detail and consistently designed for continual sharpness - ideal for professional use. The Shun Classic White series received the German Design Award 2021.
