Shun Dual Core

We've all come to expect only the finest from Shun Knives. But the Shun Dual Core Series is something altogether new. Up until now, the formula for quality Damascus blades has been a harder steel with a softer steel. But for the first time, Shun has created a Damascus blade that laminates two premium quality stainless steels in 71 alternating micro layers that extend all the way to the edge. This process marries a hard steel with a harder steel and through normal use, the two steels on the edge wear at different rates, creating micro serrations along the edge so the extremely sharp edge feels sharper, longer. The VG10 and VG2 high-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel combination is harder, thinner and lighter. The blade is beveled at 16° with an etched, low-drag, herringbone pattern that simply glides through foods effortlessly. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped bolsters and NSF-certified handles of ebony Pakkawood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful forged knives. Shun Dual Core Knives are hand-made in Seki, Japan and are backed by a Manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty. Hand wash only. All Shun knives include free lifetime sharpening from their US Headquarters in Tualatin, Oregon!
