1000/6000 Waterstone - Shun Classic
TWO GRITS IN ONE WHETSTONE
If you like the satisfaction of sharpening your knives yourself on a whetstone, the Shun Combination Whetstone is an excellent choice. Shun’s Combination Whetstone offers you two grits: a fine 1000-grit side and an even finer 6000-grit side. Since you won’t want to let your Shuns get too dull before sharpening, this stone is a good choice because it lets you put a keen edge on your Shun with the 1000-grit side, then polish it to perfection with the 6000-grit side. If you need to restore a damaged edge, look into Kai’s 300/1000-grit Combination Whetstone (DM0708).
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.
