Beautiful Shun Blue offers carbon steel performance with less fuss. Developed in partnership with award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino, these exciting knives feature a fine-grained "blue" carbon steel cutting core for razor-sharp edge and quick re-sharpening. For easier care, the "blue" carbon steel core is sandwiched between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel. The beautiful grey PakkaWoodŽ handles are a variation on a traditional Japanese design modified to meet the chef's demands for a secure and comfortable grip. The Shun Blue line makes this selection of classic Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks in the West.
