13cm (5″) Steak Knife
IF YOU LOVE STEAK, YOU’LL LOVE THE SHUN CLASSIC STEAK KNIFE
You’ve grilled the perfect steaks, but how best to cut up your masterpiece once it’s on the plate? The answer is the Shun Classic Steak Knife. With Shun’s incredibly sharp, clean edge, there is no need for serrations. The knife simply glides through your steak, keeping flavor where it belongs, and enhancing your dining experience. While you won’t eat steak every day, owning a special knife that will cut through your delicious steaks is one of the great pleasures of life. Remember that cutting against the hard surface of ceramic or glass dinner plates is tough on your edge so these knives will require a little extra care.

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.
