  • Description
  • The Shun Kazahana 8-inch Chef's Knife is a tool no kitchen should be without. The most versatile knife in any block, the 8-inch Chef's is an all-purpose blade that's the perfect length for slicing, dicing, chopping and mincing small and medium-sized foods - from strawberries to onions and eggplants.

    The rounded belly of this knife can be gently rocked through garlic and fresh herbs to produce a very fine mince. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board, and makes it easy to transfer ingredients from the board to the cooking pan.

    The full-tang blade of this Shun Kazahana knife is made of AUS10A, a high-carbon stainless steel with exceptional strength, corrosion resistance and hardness. The vanadium in the blade allows it to be sharpened to an extremely sharp 16 degree angle that will slice through any food with ease. 

    In Japanese, Kazahana means "snow that flickers like petals dancing in the sky." These beautiful knives have the name of Kazahana, as the finish on the blades mimics this beautiful sight. In addition to having an elegant look, the blade's beautiful satin finish serves the purpose of helping to release food from the blade.

    Each contoured, symmetrical Shun Kazahana knife handle is made of polished black Pakkawood, which provides a secure, comfortable grip. 

    Engraving: Up to 12 characters can be laser engraved on this Chef's Knife.
