It has been a long-time wish of ours to bring Shun (pronounced Shoon like moon) knives, Handcrafted in Japan, to Kitchen To The Table. Over the years we’ve had professional chefs asking / begging us to carry these spectacular kitchen tools. Now that these knives are here we can clearly see why they are highly coveted and drooled over.
Shun in Japanese is the precise moment during the year when any particular food is at the peak of its perfection. Shun Cutlery proudly takes its name from this Japanese culinary tradition of preparing and eating the very freshest food at the perfect shun moment. Shun Cutlery lives up to this tradition by making fine kitchen knives that are always at the peak of their perfection, too.
Japanese knives are known to be extremely sharp due to the tight 15˚ angle on the blade. Choose a Shun knife for someone who would appreciate a superior tool. This hand crafted Japanese knife requires special care. Sharpening, cutting surface and storage must all be considered when purchasing a knife of any brand.
Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife. In the great tradition of Japanese sword smiths, every knife is handmade by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Every day, the legacy of ancient sword smiths serves as inspiration to the artisans in the Kai factories. Kai’s 100-year-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.
