The Shun Classic Chefs Knife is shaped in the traditional European style and is an all purpose knife suitable for chopping, shredding, cutting, slicing and cubing all meat, fish and vegetables.
If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Classic 20cm Chefs Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chefs knife can be gently ""rocked"" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chefs knives.
All Shun Classic knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.
