- Online Only
These western-style knives from our Shun Reserve collection are as beautiful to behold as they are a pleasure to use. Striking in their design, the colorful charcoal-and-crimson PakkaWood handles are contoured for comfort and embellished with an inlaid mosaic crest.
- Handcrafted in the style of western cutlery, the knife has a fully forged blade that provides added balance when making precision cuts.
- Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword–making techniques, the blades’ core of SG2 powdered steel has a superfine, even grain capable of being forged into an ultrathin yet extremely strong, exquisitely sharp blade.
- Blades clad in a true 32-layer Damascus of forged nickel and stainless steel help food release from the blade.
- Blades have a Japanese-style 16-degree cutting angle.
- Full-tang construction and a riveted handle made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused polished PakkaWood offer comfort and control.

- Use & Care
- 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.
- 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, your knife should not need sharpening 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.
