    Additional Information

    • Stainless-steel bolster and end cap.
    • Full-tang construction provides strength and balance.
    • Double-bevel Japanese blade is hand sharpened to 16° angle on each side.
    • PakkaWood is made of genuine hardwood infused with resin for moisture-resistance, strength and durability.


    • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
    • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal and glass.
    • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


    • Hand-wash with warm water and mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
    • Avoid cleaners containing bleach and citrus extracts.
    • In order to maximize the life of the blade, regular honing with a Shun steel is necessary. Weekly honing will extend the time between sharpening significantly. When the time comes to sharpen this blade, we recommend using a whetstone or the Kai electric sharpener (specifically designed to sharpen Shun's 16° blade angle), taking it to a professional sharpener or sending it to our service centre in Tualatin, Oregon, for free sharpening.
    • Store knife in safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
