Summary

When it comes to fast, precise chopping and slicing, this is the ultimate all-purpose knife for cooks who favor the lightness and super-sharpness of Eastern cutlery. The slightly oversize, deep-bellied blade features a core of SG2 Japanese steel that holds an exquisitely fine edge with unparalleled durability. Inspired by the high-performance knives used by Japanese chefs, our exclusive Shun Fuji collection represents the very best in cutlery craftsmanship and technology.

  • Developed for the experienced cook who prefers the lightness and razor sharpness of Eastern-style blades.
  • The blade’s core of SG2 steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 80 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel.
  • Resulting 161-layer blade is thin and light yet strong and hard, with a supersharp cutting edge.
  • Handle is dark tagayasan wood, or “iron sword wood,” an extremely dense wood traditionally used in Japan to make samurai sword handles.
  • The double-D handle shape has finger ridges on both sides for a comfortable, ambidextrous grip.
  • End cap made of polished Damascus steel.
  • Shun Fuji collection won the “Kitchen Knife of the Year Award” at the U.S. 2011 Blade Show for the best in new product quality and design.
  • Handcrafted in Japan.
  • A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
