Every Shun Classic Knife in all Shun Knife Sets is made in Japan following the Kasumi method of knife making. Each Shun Classic knife has a black PakkaWood (composite hardwood) handle and a one-piece stainless steel booster, end cap and tang.
- Good Points Very good product. Shun Classic knives really are very good. Every Shun Classic Knife is made by the yasumi method of folding steel – the same method used to make samurai swords. Made from SUS419 high- carbon stainless steel. The blades have a beautiful Damascus look which stops food from sticking to the blade. The PakkaWood handle – is amazing, comfortable and every Shun Classic Knife is well balanced. In a word – Superb.
- Bad Points – Shun knives are especially designed for the user. Every Shun Classic Knife comes in left hand and right hand versions – you cannot buy one knife for several people to use. They cost a lot – but they are amazing.
