The Shun Classic Series unites centuries-old Japanese Samurai black-smithing with today's modern and technically-sophisticated manufacturing processes. The result is an exceedingly high-quality range of Damascus knives, engineered with attention to the most minute details and designed to always retain its sharpness. The knives are therefore ideally suited for professional use. The Shun Classic blades are gorgeous to look at due to the distinctive semigloss pattern exhibited by the Damascus steel composite comprising 32 layers.
A fluted knife was traditionally known as an office knife, with ‘office’ being a medieval derived word from scullery - a task that required the peeling and preparation of vegetables. The hollow and repeated dents along the side of the knife prevent food from sticking to the surface of the blade.
