From mincing vegetables to slicing fish, use a Shun Classic chef's knife for most any cutting task. It's the ultimate all-purpose knife. You won't need to sharpen a Shun chef's knife often, because its edge is harder than other knives. The layered construction of these knives from Shun means the blade won't corrode or break. The cutting edge will stay sharper longer. It also means that the blade is exceptionally sharp to begin with, so finely slicing meat or fish is easy. Shun Classic series knives feature a beautiful and germ-resistant PakkaWood handle.
