For the cook in the family, the preparation and care in how a meal is put together, cooked and served is as important as actually eating the meal itself. The difference between preparing a fast, efficient and attractive meal or a difficult and exhausting one may well be the knives that are used in the making of that meal. Shun Classic Knives have long since been the leader in food preparation for almost a century and as such they will most certainly be the best cutting and most efficient knives ever used for many consumer’s and business owner’s.  Japanese kitchen knives are very different from traditional knives, such as the Wusthof Classic knife.  Read on to find out why.

Shun Classic Knives Are More Expensive Than Most, But Worth It

Easy to use and a great fit when held, due to an innovative design which allows the blade and the handle to work in a sort of harmony, the end result is an even, precise cut. The blade is extremely strong, yet thin enough to be fast and effective. The blade is constructed of a stainless steel coating with as many as 16 layers of high carbon stainless steel to ensure superior strength. The craftsmanship of many years of expert Japanese workmanship allows for a dynamic and effective cutting edge. The key effectiveness of the Santoku design is particularly suited for dicing, slicing, mincing and especially chopping.

Shun Classic Knives“My favorite feature may just well be the handle of the Shun Classic Knives.”

It is beautiful as well as functional, a unique and well thought of D shaped handle, which fits securely in my palm and is non-slippery due to being constructed out of Pakkawood. The supreme cutting ability and the secure non-slip grip allows for faster food preparation and it features such the ability to cleanly cut through food without having particles build up on the blade itself. The chef in the home or business can just keep on dicing and slicing without a worry.

The Shun classic 7-Inch Santoku Knife is a workhorse of all knives. The ease, comfort, and even beauty with which these knives have been made, make it even more attractive to use. When it comes to working in the kitchen, anything that makes the job easier and faster to perform is a most welcome bonus. To the serious cook, a grand set of knives is a must have item and no expense seems too great to enhance something that is done everyday of one’s life.

The Shun knives can be purchased individually or in a set. These chef quality knives are not only found in the kitchen but on the dinner table as well with the availability of even a set of high quality steak knives. Whether purchasing as a gift or just for yourself, a set of Shun Classic Knives will be the best value for the money when it comes to high quality and excellent functioning knives.

Prices are moderate with a classic Shun utilitarian cutting knife selling for around $120, the knife sets are somewhat higher, but remember these are the last kitchen knives that a consumer will ever need to purchase. Manufacturer lifetime guarantees and the hundreds of rave reviews of current owners will be all the encouragement necessary for those who are thinking about purchasing their first kitchen knife or their first set of Shun Classic Knives.
