Multi-Purpose Shears - Shun
A MUST-HAVE KITCHEN TOOL
You will be amazed at the many uses for Kai’s multi-purpose shears. Of course, they cut things. In the kitchen, use them to snip herbs, trim asparagus, cut up tortillas, trim beans, open food packages, cut cheesecloth or waxed paper, trim flowers, you get the idea. In other areas of the house, they’re handy for cutting cord, twine, or rope, opening packages or envelopes, and lots more. But the Shun Multi-purpose Shears really are multi-purpose tools. There’s a built-in nutcracker, a jar opener, a bone notch (also very handy when trimming flower stems), a lid lifter, and even two screwdriver tips, one in each handle. They’re great for tightening a loose screw in the kitchen cabinet without having to go to the garage to find a screwdriver. Shun Multi-purpose Shears have one blade serrated so they can easily cut through even tough or fibrous materials. A non-slip plastic over-mold on the handles makes them comfortable to use as well. And what could make these already handy tools even handier? The blades separate for easy cleaning, then lock together easily and securely for use.
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.
