SHUN Sora Chef's 8in VB0706
SHUN-vb0706 - HQ Inventory
Add THE must-have all-around food prep knife to your collection with the Shun Cutlery 8-inch Sora Chef's Knife. Also called a gyuto, this Japanese knife features a less curved blade than a western chef knife that contacts the cutting board along more of its length to cut more food with every slice. The Sora also has a gentle roll off the tip, so it needs to be lifted less and cutting is more efficient. The San Mai construction uses VG10 steel for a corrosion-resistant, razor-sharp 16-degree cutting edge supported by 420J stainless steel on the blade upper. The traditional, full-tang handle is made of a textured PP/TPE polymer blend to provide an easy-to-maintain, contemporary look and offer a strong, secure, balanced grip. In Japan, the blade is more than a tool – it's a tradition. Housed in Seki City, the heart of the Japanese cutlery industry, Shun Fine Cutlery is dedicated to maintaining this ancient tradition. Each knife is handcrafted by highly skilled artisans to produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty. We also leverage modern, premium materials and state-of-the-art technology to provide Shun quality to millions of professional chefs and avid home cooks throughout the world.
