KSDM0727: 5 1/2" Santoku - Ebony-Black PakkaWood Handle
Shun Knives

This stunningly beautiful line of classic cutlery features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
  • VG-10 stainless steel is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon steel on each side, producing a 33-layer rust-free Damascus look
  • VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon, and Vanadium
  • Shun Classics feature Ebony-black PakkaWood® handles specifically designed for premium applications
  • Stainless-steel bolsters and end caps
  • Dishwasher safe
  • NSF approved
In addition to their clad VG-10 blades, The Shun Classics also feature our uniquely stable "D" shape handle design.

The "D" shape rests precisely in the curve of the fingers as they curl around the handle. The asymmetrical bolster is ground out more on the right side to provide proper finger placement and an easy, secure grip. The knives balance perfectly, with the pivot point just ahead of where the handle sweeps out of the blade. Shun Classics may be special ordered for left-handed users—with the asymmetrical bolster ground out on the left side for ideal finger placement.

The black PakkaWood® handles provide the beauty of genuine wood, but—since the wood is impregnated with a waterproof resin—the handles are as durable as plastic and dishwasher safe, too.

a really great knife
We have several Shun knives. All are excellent, but this knife has quickly become everyone's favorite kitchen knife. Shuns have nice balance and great looks but what sets them apart is their ability to effortlessly take a really sharp edge and hold it. Also by laminating the steel, Shun creates very stiff blades. This extreme stiffness allows the pressure to be concentrated on the edge and these knives slip through food like it wasn't there. One issue with this and others in the series is the corner of the blade towards the handle is as sharp as the rest of the blade and it is pretty easy to nick your hand if you're not careful. My wife was a bit intimidated by this at first.
