For the true Japanese food aficionado, nothing compares to the scalpel-like precision of a single bevel blade to deliver perfect precision. The newly updated Shun Pro line features the same incredibly sharp chisel edges as in the past, combined with D-shaped PakkaWood handles that nestle comfortably into the curves of the palm, offering control and a secure grip. ShunPro now features a beautiful graffiti-etched blade made with high carbon VG10 steel, which takes and holds an edge longer than comparable knives. The blade backs are gently hollow ground, creating
an air pocket between the knife and the food being cut, so the knife glides through food with quick precision.
For those chefs who are truly into the Japanese method of cooking, the wide Shinogi (or blade bevel) makes sharpening these knives on a whetsone practically effortless.
