By investing in a quality knife such as these, you're making sure that your kitchen is well equipped for years to come.
Shun Classic Chef Knife
A great kitchen multi-tasker, the Shun Classic Chef Knife is a go-to in the kitchen. Designed as an all-purpose knife with a view to being used in a busy kitchen with a variety of cutting tasks. The six-inch blade, which is considered a small chef knife, preferable to a lot of chefs, is used for dicing, chopping, slicing, cutting up vegetables and many other things. It is nimble, with a wide blade which is ideal for sliding food from the chopping board to the pot. The knife has a curved belly which means it can be rocked through herbs or spices or used to make finely minced meat.
Shun Classic Vegetable Knife
When more precise cuts are needed during food preparation, the Shun Classic Vegetable Knife is a handy tool. Ideal for trimming broccoli, green beans, slicing corn, its blade is shaped into a 3 ½ inch edge. This makes it easy to hold your vegetables in one hand, while you slice them into the pan. The flat edge also works well in chopping or mincing on a chopping board.
You can maintain this high level of quality with Shun cutlery sharpeners. The Shun Combination Whetstone, for example, offers 300-grit sharpening that easily clears grit and reveals the sharpness of your knife with the 1000-grit opposing side smoothing out the edge.
