  • Our exclusive Shun Hiro collection features high-performance Eastern-style knives designed for speed, agility and balance as well as striking beauty. A cutting core of ultra premium SG-2 steel gives them a super sharp, lasting edge, and hammered blades help keep foods from sticking for fast, efficient use. Handcrafted in Japan, this dual-density knife combines two types of serrations to cut easily through crusty breads as well as delicate tomatoes.

    • Unique combination of low- and high-frequency serrations guarantees unsurpassed performance.
    • Low-frequency serrations help minimize resistance between blade and cutting board.
    • High-frequency serrations reduce tearing when cutting soft-skinned foods (like tomatoes) or slicing through hard crusts.
    • The blade's core of SG-2 powdered steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 32 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel, for a total of 65 layers.
    • SG-2 is an extremely fine-grained, dense and hard steel, which enables it to take and hold an exquisitely fine edge with long-lasting sharpness.
    • The hammered pattern (tsuchime in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking.
    • Contoured, ambidextrous handle is designed for ultimate comfort and control.
    • Handle is dark charcoal-colored PakkaWood with crimson striations and an inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest.
    • Mirror-polished nickel silver bolster and end cap.
    • 7 1/4"-long blade; 4 3/4"-long handle; 6 oz.
    • A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
