Filleting flexible knife 18 cm. Kai SHUN series
Every Shun knife is a unique piece, an artwork.
This Shun professional knife is not made in VG-10 steel, since the VG-10 very hard steel of Shun Classic does not have this type of flexibility.
The knife is made in AUS8A steel, a stainless steel having a high carbon contents, giving hardness, resistance to use, as well as a good flexibility.
Thanks to the convex surface of the blade and to the manual sharpening of every Shun knife, an unequalled cutting is obtained and the knife slips also through the most difficult foodstuffs to cut. This cutting-edge together with the balanced weight of the knife allow to work without effort.
The handle is made in laminated wood (pakka) very strong, elegant and with an ergonomic shape.
The transversal section of the handle has the traditional chestnut Japanese shape, that fits the fingers of the hand. Thanks to the new Fulltang type of construction, the outline is extended up to the end of the handle.Therefore the blade and the handle are perfectly united and the knife can be handled in an optimum way.
This non-damascene knife with flexible blade is fit for cutting fish into fillets.
