The Shun Pro Sho series focuses exclusively on single-edged and thus traditional Japanese blade shapes. Thanks to an extremely high standard of manufacture and material properties, the series is particularly suitable for continuous professional use. The elegant design of the knife combines classic Japanese styling with contemporary features in a masterly fashion. A visual highlight of the knives, they are elaborately decorated with an ornamental pattern in an innovative manufacturing process. The black pakkawood handle, with its simple, elegant D shape, as in the Shun Classic series, is in marked functional contrast to the opulent blade pattern.
Shun Pro Series
Nothing compares to the scalpel-like precision of a single-bevel. The Shun Classic Pro line features single-bevel blades in pure VG10 stainless steel with sharp chisel edges and comfortable D-shaped PakkaWood handles. With their dramatic, graffiti-etched blades, these knives are visually striking as well. The etched design on the blade—different for each blade style—is similar to etching found on custom Japanese knives and used to identify the blade’s maker. Blade backs are gently hollow ground, creating a tiny air pocket between blade and food so the knife glides through each task with quick precision. Sharpening on a whetstone is practically effortless.
