Shun Kitchen Knives

Known for their superb blade strength, stain resistance and incredible cutting performance, Shun kitchen knives are used by both professionals and discerning home chefs. The wavy pattern on these metal blades is called a "Damascus look," and involves 16 layers of high carbon stainless steel which are then pounded to 3/1000th of an inch and then "clad" on each side of the core.

Shun kitchen knives are some of the world's best cutlery - these knives are meant to last a lifetime!

What resulted is a beautiful (and comfortable!) work of art. The Shun Onion 8-inch kitchen knife will quickly become your favorite.
