The Shun Dual Core 8 inch Kiritsuke, known as a Master Chef's Knife in Japan, is ideal for slicing, chopping and portioning proteins. It also slices cooked proteins easily and gracefully. The Shun Premier Kiritsuke features a slightly curved edge so that it works well even with rocking cuts. While the blade is extremely strong and will hold its edge, Japanese Steel does not have flexibility so we do not advise using this knife on bone in meats, frozen fruits, or stone cutting boards. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong. The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. 71 alternating micro-layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are forged together to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Core's extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.
