About the steel: Introducing Shun Blue Steel. These exciting knives feature a carbon steel cutting core for a razor-sharp edge and easy re-sharpening. For easier care, the carbon core is sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. The initial blade shapes are traditional Japanese shapes, including the honesuki boning knife, the all-purpose kiritsuke, and the menkiri noodle knife. The Shun Blue Steel line makes an exciting selection of traditional Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks in the West.
  • Japanese san mai construction; carbon steel is sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel for the ultra-sharp benefits of carbon steel without the additional maintenance
  • Cutting core of fine-grained "blue" carbon steel (hardened to 61 Rockwell) offers incredible sharpness, edge retention—and yet is easy to re-sharpen
  • Mirror polish looks beautiful, enhances stain resistance
  • Light bead blasting along the edge shows off the san mai construction
  • Traditional Japanese handle styles
  • Each knife includes a Japanese-style saya, or sheath
  • Model Number: VG0011
  • Honesuki 4-1/2"
  • Made in Japan

A joy
Fantastic knife. Purpose built for boning. I had no idea that this blade shape would make a difference, but it is a joy. The blue steel colors up nicely, retains an edge and touches up easily. My two other Shun knifes are VG-10 and quite excellent. This is in another league. And the sheath is perfect. Allows me to (horrors!) store it in a drawer. My best kitchen knife.
