Shun Classic Western Chef's 8"
The Shun Classic 8-in. Western Cook’s Knife offers a 22° cutting angle instead of the 16° cutting angle of the rest of the Shun Classic line. The less-acute edge provides additional strength that helps when dealing with more solid foods like winter squash or large heads of cabbage. Regardless, this knife shares the thinner blades and beautiful construction of the rest of the Shun Classic line. With a blade that it significantly wider than the traditional Shun Clasic 8", it’s perfect for a wide range of kitchen tasks - whether you are slicing, dicing, or chopping.
The Shun Classic 8-in. Western Cook’s Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of contemporary cutlery. This line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony Pakka Wood handles. Behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful.
