Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Behind the knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
