Shun Blue 9" Slicing Knife

SKU: SKVG0015

MSRP: $300.00

The Shun Blue 9" Slicing Knife features a long, thin blade with a razor-sharp edge. This combination yields a very clean cut, which improves the flavor of your roast or other meat by keeping the juices trapped where they belong. The 9-inch blade means you can cut slices with a single, long stroke. The narrow profile and razor-sharp Shun edge lets the blade glide through the meat with less friction so each slice is perfect. Ideal for slicing a wide variety of meats, the Shun Blue Slicing Knife can also be used to cut larger vegetables.

In the tradition of Japan's ancient sword smiths, each Shun Blue knife is handcrafted in Seki City, Japan. Designed in partnership with award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino, each Shun Blue knife features a traditional Japanese blade shape, a "blue" carbon steel cutting core, and an elegant grey PakkaWood handle. This collection of knives boasts the razor-sharp edges and ease of resharpening of carbon steel, which is favored by professional chefs. Sandwiching this professional "blue" carbon steel core between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel brings to each knife in the collection the ease of use and care of standard stainless steel blades.

The Shun Blue handle is crafted from beautiful blue PakkaWood, and is a variation on a traditional Japanese handle design, modified to make the grip more secure and comfortable.

Included with each Shun Blue knife is a traditional Japanese wooden sheath, or saya.
