Handcrafted in Japan, Shun Dual-Core knives are a masterful pairing of strength and beauty. Two types of stainless steel are welded and forged together to produce both the stunning Damascus pattern and the ultra-strong blade, which holds its sharp edge, requiring less honing. This santoku readily handles all the tasks of a chef's knife, with a 7" blade that makes it light, agile and very easy to maneuver.
- 71 alternating micro layers of high-carbon, high-chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steel are welded together and fold-forged to produce an extremely strong, fine-grained steel.
- With normal use, the two types of steel will wear at different rates, creating micro serrations along the edge for long-lasting sharpness.
- Hand-sharpened 16-degree double-bevel blade.
- Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, releasing food quickly and easily.
- Traditional Japanese octagonal handle in ebony PakkaWood.
