KSDM0706: DM0706 Classic 8" Chef's Knife
Shun Cutlery

If there is one knife that you simply can't be without, it's this one. The Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.

The Shun Classic 8-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.
  • The true does-it-all kitchen knife

  • Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers each side (68 total) stainless Damascus cladding

  • Blade length: 8 in. (20.3 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan

Shun Knife
I have been searching for a really good kitchen knife. This is perfect. I will be ordering some more Shun knives as soon as they are in stock. The price was great compared to prices in the UK and I received the item within 10 days-brilliant.

Great Looking Knife
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son. I took it out of the shipping package when it arrived and saw what a great looking knife it is and the excellent craftsmanship. Super sharp too. I plan to get one for myself.

Just bought a Shun Classic 8" Chef's Knife from Knife Centre. WOW ! Its not just a beautiful knife but extremely sharp and well-balanced as well. Really appreciate the ease of using such a well engineered knife. I use it to chop vegetables and slice meat and fish. With this knife, it could not have been easier. I just let the knife do the work for me. I'm so impressed and delighted.
