Shun Dual Core 8 inch Kiritsuke Knife is the Japanese master chefs knife. This incredibly sharp and light weight knife is crafted to handle most any kitchen cutting job. It's the first knife we reach for when making dinner or preparing for a party.

Shun Dual Core was "Kitchen Knife of the Year" by the prestigious Blade Show. Dual core is perhaps the best knife we've ever used. As with all Shun products, the Dual Core Honesuki knife is hand crafted in Japan and is backed by a Shun lifetime guarantee.

You'll appreciate the sharpness and light weight of the award-winning Shun Dual Core Kiritsuke knife. Use this knife for almost any kitchen chopping, slicing or cutting task.

  • MetroKitchen.com recommends washing your knives by hand and immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts, as they may stain the surface of your knives.
  • For longer lasting knives, cut on a wooden cutting board. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
  • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after using your knives.
  • It's best to store your Shun knife so the edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
  • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
  • Shun knives don't need frequent sharpening because they are made from 71 extremely durable layers of stainless steel.
  • Lifetime limited warranty from Shun with normal use and proper care.
  • Hand crafted in Japan
