KSDM0723: DM0723 Classic 6" Chef's Knife
Shun Cutlery

For a chef's knife that is particularly lightweight and highly maneuverable, try the Shun Classic 6-inch Chef's Knife. Like all chef's knives, it is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. While the six-inch length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods, many cooks prefer this smaller size for its sheer nimbleness. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

The Shun Classic 6-in. Chef's Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony Pakkawood handles. Yet 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 to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

Kitchen razor!
Sharp as a razor and hold an edge for what seems like an eternity. Functional beauty as well. The absolute best six inch chef's knife I have ever used and I have used a bunch - German, Japanese, and American made as well.
