    Shun Knives Sora Series Cutlery - 6 Inch Japanese Chef's Knife

    It's time to chop, cut, dice, and slice. It's time to cook. It's time for Shun. The 6 Inch Shun Cutlery Sora Chef's Knife can satisfy the most discriminating cook with its precise sharpness and beauty. Authentic Japanese methods provide traditional blade shapes and handle designs. The textured handle blend of TPE/PP polymers is contemporary and food-safe. It provides easy maintenance, excellent gripping, and good balance. The comprehensive 32 degree double bevel San Mai blade is a Japanese tradition with a rolling wave design that is the heart of the Shun Knives Sora Series Cutlery pieces. The Shun Cutlery Sora Chef's Knife is a thing of individual, hand-crafted functional art.

    San Mai is the ancient Japanese method of making superior quality knife blades. It is a merging of hard and soft steel compositions to bring out the best characteristics of both. The harder, high carbon steel piece provides good edge retention and sharpness. The softer spine grants durability and flexibility. Shun Knives Sora Series Cutlery is made using a special process of laser cutting two blade sections, one of each soft and hard steel. These are joined like a jigsaw puzzle, and then braze welded together. The visually attractive waves that pattern this joint is based on ancient sword hamon lines. The hamon is the graceful temper line of a differentially heat-treated blade. Each hamon line is different and unique. It is the mark, and visual evidence, that the maker worked with skilled efforts to produce the finest blade work possible. The best hamon line is clear, unbroken, and well-formed. Shun Cutlery Sora Knives display this commitment to the ancient method of San Mai blades.

    The Shun Cutlery Sora Chef's Knife will enable you to have mastery over of all the kitchen preparation chores that are before you. The small, agile Japanese chef's knife is wonderfully maneuverable and lightweight. It is all purpose for slicing, dicing, and chopping with swift sharpness. The slightly curved belly of the chef's knife can be gently "rocked" for fine mincing of onions, garlic, herbs, and spices. It is best used for prepping proteins, and small or medium sized fruits and vegetables. The Shun Cutlery Sora Chef's Knife can be the prized tool of your collection. The one you first grab for its versatility and superior sharpness. The time is right to add Shun to your kitchen world today.
