The Shun Tradition

 

The Shun Tradition

Shun precision knives are made in Seki City,
Japan, famous for its 700-year-old tradition of fine
metalsmithing. Using exceptionally strong metal alloys
and a unique combination of forging techniques, Shun's
master knife makers have taken everyday kitchen
cutlery to an innovative new level of excellence.
