This Limited Edition Shun Engetsu 8" Chef's Knife is unlike any you have seen before, unlike any you have used before. You can feel the difference with each cut. Visually, with its cascading, bright blade patterning and vibrant blue handle, the Engetsu could not be confused for anything else. But you can also feel a remarkable difference with each cut. Precision control at heel and tip. Butter-smooth slicing at center. This is the Engetsu Zone Performance Blade Technology. While this is similar to the 2-steel patterning that makes the Dual Core line so awesome, the steel patterning in Engetsu knives is targeted to the different edge zones, providing different types of cutting precision in each of those blade zones. The heel/tip is super precice, but also tougher to stand up to increased board contact inherent to those areas, while the more densely patterned center is engineered for incredibly smooth, clean and effortless cutting. This extraordinary chef’s knife is almost limitlessly versatile and will certainly be one your most treasured kitchen tools. Shun Engetsu Knives are forged with additional balancing at the hilt and the elegant "brushstroke" endcap. A very nice wood veneered presentation box with gold Shun logo is included. Handcrafted in Japan and backed by a manufacturer's lifetime limited warranty.
