The Shun series of kitchen knives is one of the best damask steel series and is very appreciated by professional and hobby chefs. These kitchen knives are made from stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The core layer is made from VG MAX steel, corrosion-resistant and extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1% carbon and 1.5% cobalt). The manual honing and the convex cut of the blade of each Kai Shun knife provide a great sharpness that allows the cutting through even the toughest material. This sharpness and the well-balanced weight of the knife makes for tireless work.
By refining the natural beauty of the damask grain, each Kai Shun kitchen knife gets its individual character. This way every Shun knife is unique and unmistakable. It is a mix of art, craftmanship, design and technology. This Kai series is inspired by the masterful art of Samurai swords.
KAI has received international recognition for its japanese kitchen knives of high quality and origin. KAI’s technique is based on the ancient art of Japanese Samurai sword forging. Continuous innovation and a constant drive for aesthetic design give KAI kitchen knives their unmistakable and global reputation.
