8" Chef's Knife - Shun Narukami
20cm (8″) Chef’s Knife
YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND IN THE KITCHEN
If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Narukami 8 -inch Chef’s Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. This size is the perfect length for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, 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 Chef’s knife can be gently “rocked” through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Narukami’s thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef’s knives.
SHUN NARUKAMI LINE—WHERE EXCELLENCE BEGINS
Originating in Seki City, Japan’s historical center for manufacturing samurai swords, Kai Shun is heir to a seven-century tradition of superior workmanship. Kitchen cutlery for the ultimate knife connoisseur, Kai’s Shun Narukami line features blades of high-carbon Japanese Blue #2 steel for a keen edge, superior edge retention and ease of honing and sharpening. Shun’s stainless steel cladding aids in food release, performance and superior protection of the high carbon cutting core. The durable riveted Micarta handles provides a comfortable solid grip that resists moisture and looks beautiful.
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.
