Fork - Shun Classic
16.5cm (6½”) Carving Fork (Bayonet Style)
THE PERFECT MATCH FOR THE SHUN CLASSIC CARVING KNIFE
The Shun Classic Carving Fork is an elegant match for the Shun Classic Slicing or Carving Knife. This two-pronged fork easily holds food in place while slicing or carving and assists in serving, too. The Shun Classic Carving Fork acts as an extension of the carver’s arm, holding the meat in place while your Shun Slicing or Carving Knife glides through, making beautiful slices. The long tines of a carving fork are designed to penetrate large or small roasts with ease. It can be used to “anchor” meats to the cutting board as you slice, making cutting safer ensuring that your hand stays clear of both the meat and the knife. The elegance of a Shun Classic Carving Fork is a must-have for presentation carving. Paired with the Shun Classic Carving Knife, it bring that little something extra special to the Thanksgiving table. Yet even if your carving is done in the kitchen, the Shun Classic Carving Fork makes carving much easier and serving a genuine pleasure.

AT THE PEAK OF PERFECTION
In Japan, “shun” (pronounced shoon) is the word used to describe local, seasonal food at the very peak of its flavor and freshness. Shun is a time—the exact moment—when a fruit has reached its perfect ripeness, when a vegetable is at its very best, when meat is at its most flavorful. Home cooks and professional chefs alike celebrate shun in their kitchens, eagerly awaiting each season’s bounty and serving every ingredient in its proper time. Kai named their fine cutlery Shun to honor this tradition of seasonal, mindful eating and as a mark of their dedication to making kitchen cutlery that is always at the peak of its perfection, too.
So now you know; just say, “Shoon” (rhymes with “moon”) for kitchen cutlery that’s designed to help keep your freshest ingredients at their very best.
