Classic Series Chef's Knife (8") with PakkaWood® Handle from Shun Cutlery
The Shun 8-inch Classic Series Chef's Knife has a medium weight and size, making it a suitable all-purpose blade for chopping, slicing, mincing, and dicing fruits and vegetables. The wide blade keeps the user's fingers off the cutting board and and allows for easy transfer of foods from the countertop directly to the pan.
Shun Classic Series knives and cutlery use blades comprised of 68 layers of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX steel, which are each then clad in Damascus steel for a mottled pattern that resembles a fine wood grain. The result is a contemporary knife with eye-catching looks that resists corrosion and dulling, and won't break under normal use. Elegant ebony PakkaWood® handles complement the blades and provide critical balance and a supreme grip to enhance cutting, chopping, and slicing. Shun Knives come with a limited lifetime warranty and free sharpening for as long as the blade is owned by the original purchaser.

Cant beat the Classics! Review by ChefD
Great weighted knife with layered steel. I own a full set of these shun knives and down own this model personally I have the Ken onion 8" instead. I got this as a gift for someone. She was getting sick of her german made knives due to their heavy weight. This is very light and thin blade makes cutting easily.
Keeps an edge very well but is a bit harder to sharpen with the vg-10. It does have a very nice heat treat and keeps an edge better than my many vg-10 pocket knives. (Posted on 4/23/16)
