Classic Blonde // Chef’s Knife // 8”
This is every cook's must-have knife. The Shun Classic Blonde 8" Chef's Knife is an all-purpose knife ideal for a full range of cutting tasks. This new blonde-handled version of the Classic Chef's knife features an 8" blade ideal for preparing fruits, vegetables, and proteins. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is exceptionally handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, this chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic Blonde's thin, sharp blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives.
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.
The angle of the blade is 16 degrees.
