Classic Blonde // Santoku Knife // 7”
Like a chef’s knife, the 7" Japanese Santoku is a multipurpose knife used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. The name means “three virtues.” This refers either to the three types of foods it works especially well with—vegetables, proteins, and fruit, or for the three types of cuts at which it excels: slicing, dicing, and chopping. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, a santoku is very easy to maneuver—even in a smaller kitchen. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which enhances the knife's versatility. This distinctive piece of kitchen cutlery performs beautifully and you'll find that the new blonde Pakkawood handles fit your hand like a comfortable glove.
The Shun Classic Blonde series features 69-layer Damascus-clad blades and PakkaWood handles in a light and beautiful natural wood tone. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is top function. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel forms the cutting core of the blade and holds its razor-sharp edge longer. The core is clad with 68 micro layers of Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that is ultra-sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as simply magnificent to behold.

Please Note: It is important to protect your knives by hand washing your knives with gentle dish soap. Do not use soaps with citrus extracts or bleach; they can promote rust. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Take extra time to get ALL of the water/moisture off of the sharp cutting edge. It is best to store your Shun cutlery in a wooden block, in-drawer knife tray, sheath, or knife case. Do not store your knives unsheathed in a drawer.
