Shun Blue Slicing Knife 9" Blade (VG0015)
KSVG0015: Blue Slicing Knife
THIN, BEAUTIFUL SLICES EVERY TIME
The Shun Blue Slicing Knife not only makes food look delicious by enabling you to cut thin, even slices. It can also make food taste better. With the Shun Blue Slicing Knife’s longer length, narrower blade, and Shun-sharp edge you can make long, even slices without tearing or sawing. This kind of clean-cut keeps more of the meat juices—and thus more of the flavor—inside the meat, rather than pooling on the cutting board. The Shun Blue Slicing Knife’s 9-in. blade means you can cut slices with a single, long stroke. The narrow profile and razor-sharp Shun edge let the blade glide through the meat with less friction so each slice is perfect. Ideal for slicing a wide variety of meats, the Shun Blue Slicing Knife can also be used to cut larger vegetables.
The Shun Blue Slicing Knife is part of the beautiful Shun Blue series. The series includes traditional Japanese blade shapes that are essential for preparing the proteins, as well as a selection of all-purpose tools every kitchen needs. These exciting knives feature a carbon steel cutting core for a razor-sharp edge and quick re-sharpening. For easier care, the "blue" carbon steel core is sandwiched between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel. But note that these knives will need additional care to protect the edge from rust. The beautiful grey PakkaWood handles are a variation on a traditional Japanese design for a secure and comfortable grip.
The Blue Steel series of knives have a rabbet tang. This is one of the traditional ways samurai swords were commonly made. It enables Shun to control the weight of the knife for quick and agile cutting. It also enables them to fully enclose the tang to ensure a comfortable grip.
Designed to meet the demands of the professional chef, Shun Blue line makes this selection of classic Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks alike.
Includes traditional Japanese wooden saya, or sheath.
