While you're prepping away in the kitchen, your friends might be impressed if you told them that the wavy line down the center of the Shun Sora Chef's 8 in. Knife is actually a representation of the traditional "hamon," which was originally seen in traditional Japanese sword-making as the result of folding a piece of metal hundreds of times over. Even if your friends find this information kind of tedious, you're using a high-quality chef's knife to prepare them a stellar meal, so they should at least nod politely while you cook for them. And the results will be amazing, thanks to the precision work of this composite blade. The chef's knife is a versatile tool, and thanks to the stainless steel and VG10 san mai blade, you've got a laser-cut blade with a sharp edge at the end of a traditionally styled, ergonomic handle of durable polymer.
