SANTOKU KNIFE: The Shun 5.5-inch Classic Santoku knife is an Asian-inspired cooking knife that's a favorite among cooks for its ability to easily handle all the basic kitchen cutting tasks.
VERSATILE KNIFE: This kitchen knife is shorter than a standard chef's knife, light, agile and easy to maneuver with just enough belly curve for rocking cuts.
HIGH-QUALITY CONSTRUCTION: Constructed with Shun's proprietary VG-MAX cutting core and clad in 68 layers of stainless Damascus, this santoku knife is corrosion and stain resistant with a strong, razor-sharp edge.
COMFORTABLE HANDLE: The D-shaped, ebony-finished Pakkawood handle is durable, beautiful, doesn't harbor bacteria, and comfortable to use for both left- and right-handed users.
TRADITIONAL, ARTISAN CUTLERY: Inspired by the traditions of ancient Japan, Shun knives are handcrafted by highly skilled artisans to produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty.
