The Shun Pro Sho Series focuses exclusively on single-edged and thus traditionally Japanese blade shapes. Thanks to extremely high manufacturing standards and corrosion-resistant blade steels, this series is particularly suitable for continuous professional use. The knife’s elegant design combines classic Japanese form with contemporary features in a sublime fashion. Their blades embossed with an elaborate ornamental pattern, created using an innovative manufacturing process, form the knives’ visual highlight. As in the Shun Classic Series, the elegantly shaped and functional pakkawood handle stands in stark contrast to the blade’s opulent patterns.
The Japanese Deba knife or Deba bōchō translates to “little carving knife” - a part of the three types of knives that comprise the three standards of Japanese knives for cuisine along with Yanagiba and Usuba — primarily used for cutting fish and other kinds of meat.
