The Classic Santoku Knife from the Blonde Series is an all-purpose knife perfect for any cutting job. A santoku is especially great for slicing, dicing, and chopping, whether fruit, vegetables, or protein. This santoku is just slightly smaller than a chef's knife, and there's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which enhances the knife's versatility. With a beautiful Pakkawood handle, this knife is ideal for any kitchen.
The Shun Classic Blonde series features our 69-layer Damascus-clad blades and PakkaWood handles in a light, beautiful natural wood tone. They are ultra-sharp, durable, beautifully balanced, and simply magnificent to behold.
Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "Shoon") have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
