 Product Information.

 

The Shun Classic 8-in. Western Cook's Knife offers a 22° cutting angle instead of the 16° cutting angle of the rest of the Shun Classic line. This less-acute edge provides additional strength that helps when tackling heavier foods, for example winter squash or large heads of cabbage. Nevertheless, this knife shares the thinner blades and beautiful construction of the rest of the Shun Classic line. It's perfect for a wide range of kitchen tasks, from slicing and dicing to rocking cuts.

  • Ideal for heavier duty kitchen tasks
  • Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core is wear and corrosion resistant, strong, and very fine-grained to enable a long-lasting edge; 22° angle on each side of the blade enables this knife to handle tougher tasks like winter squash
  • 34 layers of stainless Damascus cladding each side (68 total); support the core, add stain resistance, and help food release from the blade
  • D-shaped ebony-finished PakkaWood® handles are comfortable for both left- and right-handed users; durable, beautiful, and won't harbor bacteria
  • Full composite tang for light weight and perfect balance
  • Handcrafted in Japan
