If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one! The Shun Classic 8-inch Chef’s Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The 8-inch length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps your knuckles off of the cutting board and is handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef’s knife can be gently “rocked” through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic’s thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef’s knives.
