With all the power and versatility of a chef’s knife in a slightly smaller blade, the Shun Sora 6-inch Chef’s Knife is a lightweight, maneuverable kitchen knife capable of handling a variety of ingredients and functions. Its slightly curved belly allows for gentle rocking motions to mince herbs and other foods, a helpful asset during meal preparation. Blade is made using Shun’s proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a premium VG10 cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel blade upper. This technology puts high-performance material on the cutting edge and allows Shun to offer extremely high-performance knives at a more affordable price. The Chef’s Knife handle is made in a traditional Japanese design and made from a PP/TPE polymer blend, resulting in a lightweight and durable handle. Shun kitchen knives are handcrafted in Japan for pristine quality as Shun strives to produce knives of perfection. Shun provides premier kitchen cutlery for every type of kitchen.
