More Info
The Shun Sora 8" Chef's Knife is the first knife you'll want to start your Sora collection. Of course you know it's the essential kitchen knife. But what you might not know is that since the Sora line features traditional Japanese blade and handle shapes, in Japan, the Sora Chef's Knife would be called a gyuto. It's used for all the same purposes as a chef's knife—all-around food preparation. But the Sora Chef's has less curve than a Western chef's knife, meaning it contacts the cutting board along more of its length, so more food is cut per slice. The Sora Chef's Knife has a gentle roll off the tip compared to the large roll of a Western style knife, so the Sora needs to be lifted less, making cutting more efficient. Once you try the Sora Chef's Knife, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.

Features:
  • THE must-have kitchen knife
  • Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive)
  • Steel: Proprietary Composite Blade Technology; VG10 san mai cutting core; Japanese 420J blade upper
  • VG10 is clad with one layer of stainless steel on each side to create the san mai edge and provide stain resistance
  • Handle: Traditional Japanese handle design in easy-care, textured TPE
  • Blade length: 8 in. (20.3 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan
  • Product Reviews for Shun Sora 8 Inch Chef's Knife 8 in. (20.3 cm) Blade

    The Sora knife line uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed—on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. While Sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the textured PP/TPE polymer blend handle material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain.
