Classic // Chef's 8”
The Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince, and its thinner blade make it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.
The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles, along with razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

Yes, all of our knives can be sharpened using any appropriate whetstone. As far as other sharpeners such as electric or pull-through, we recommend using only products that we manufacture because of the 16-degree angle on our edges.
