Shun VB0723 Sora Chef's Knife 6" Blade, TPE Polymer Handle
KSVB0723: Sora 6" Chef's Knife VB0723
If you've never tried a 6-in. chef's knife, you might be surprised at how much you will love it. This shorter length is particularly lightweight and highly maneuverable. Of course, like all chef’s knives, it is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks—slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The Shun Sora 6-in. Chef's Knife's Asian-style blade is light and agile. With its curved belly, this Chef's knife can also be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
The Shun Sora 6-in. Chef's Knife is part of the exciting Shun Sora line that provides exceptional handcrafted Shun quality at an amazing price. Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed—on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. While Sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the textured TPE polymer handle material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain.
