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.
The most fitting Eastern variation to the well known Western meat cleaver, the Chinese chopper is a knife that is used for every purpose, in China. Despite “cleaver” being in the name, the blade is not really known to be used for cutting sizeable dense animal bones. It is better suited for chicken bones and wide vegetables.
In the hands of an adept wielder, the Chinese chopper can show its versatility with the ability to julienne, slice, dice and mince vegetables of all kinds, despite its size. A multi-purpose knife that can also crush garlic and ginger on its flat side and tenderise meat with the back of the blade.
