KSDM0707: DM0707 Classic 10" Chef's Knife

Shun Cutlery


Some cooks simply prefer a longer chef's knife. For them, Shun offers the Classic 10-inch Chef's Knife. The longer blade provides additional cutting leverage and is especially handy when it comes to cutting larger foods. That said, it is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks—slicing, dicing, and chopping just about anything in the kitchen. The longer blade also enables you to cut more product with fewer strokes—for example, cutting several carrots at once instead of just one. This is especially important for the productivity of commercial kitchens. Even though this is a larger knife, Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.

The Shun Classic 10-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.

Shun Classic 10" Chef's Knife Review
I use this every day, primarily for chopping vegetables. It's made the task much easier; the blade is very sharp, and the knife feels balanced in my hands. It is much heftier than my grocery store-bought santoku, and as a result, I can let the knife do the cutting and put less physical exertion into chopping.

Cons: None
Nice balance, sharpest edge
This knife cuts through produce, including tomatoes with ease. I would like a little better balance but this is a very small set back. The blade stays sharp through several uses. It rarely needs use of a steel. I'm sure abuse would create some issue. I have accidentally hit other hard objects with the blade. A few quick hits with a steel always corrects the problem. I do a lot of cutting. I purchased the knife 5 months ago and have only used a sharpening steel to restore the edge. This was money well spent.
