  • Shun Damasco

    The Shun series of chef‘s knives is one of the most comprehensive damask steel series worldwide and highly appreciated by top class professionals as well as ambitious hobby chefs. Shun professional chef’s knives are made from specific stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The core layer is made from V-Gold-10-steel. This is an extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and corrosion-resistant steel that gives the blade a sharpness that is second to none. The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material. This sharpness together with the well-balanced weight of the knife makes for tireless work. Each Shun knife gets its unique and individual character by refining the natural beauty of the damask grain. This way every Shun knife is unmistakable and unique – a piece of art, united by craftsmanship, technology and design. Inspired by the masterful art of Samurai swords the technique for manufacturing the finest chef’s knives enables the Shun series even to deliver knives with western blade shapes.

  • Wasabi Black

    Wasabi Black – polished blade, black handle: these Japanese designed knives feature a stainless steel polished blade with a hardness of 58±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair. A handle has been developed for the Wasabi series that offers the optimum hygiene thanks to the special combination of bamboo powder and polypropylene – assisted by the natural anti-bacterial properties of the bamboo parts. In contrast to the traditional Japanese wood handle the black handle is not inserted but embraces the blade completely. Thus the blade is closely connected to the handle, not allowing dirt to settle in any gaps – making the knives suitable for canteens.

  • Shun Pro Sho

    The Kai Shun PRO Sho series complements the SHUN chef’s knife series with its traditional Japanese single-edged blade shapes. The blades are made from the core material of the damask steel series – the V-gold-10 steel. This top-of-the-range series of Japanese chef’s knives is not only held in high esteem by Sushi chefs all over the world. It is also increasingly popular among European chefs. The single-edged blade with its hollow ground cut on the opposite side provides a unique cutting experience not known to most European blade shapes.
