This is a Shun DM0766: Western Cook's knife with a blade length of 8 inches. It features VG-Max Super Steel for a harder, sharper, and lighter blade. The handle is made from Walnut Pakkawood and designed to be held with either the left or the right hand. The Shun line features the tradition Japanese blade angle of 16 degrees, but the western style blade is a flatter 22 degree angle. This allows for more power and it why this knife is ideal for tackling tougher foods such as melons, squash, and cabbage.
Shun is Kai's premier kitchen brand. Pieces of art: these knifes are hand-made going through a minimum of 100 steps to complete. As with all Shun the blades are made of a high-carbon steel that offers strength, hardness, and wear resistance. Shun is consistently referred to as being the best in the world and its not hard to see why.
