Additional Information

  • Stainless-steel bolsters and end caps.
  • Full-tang construction provides strength and balance.
  • Double-bevel Japanese blades are 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 blades, regular honing with a Shun steel is necessary. Weekly honing will extend the time between sharpening significantly. When the time comes to sharpen these blades, we recommend using a whetstone or the Kai electric sharpener (specifically designed to sharpen Shun's 16° blade angle), taking them to a professional sharpener or sending them to our service centre in Tualatin, Oregon, for free sharpening.
  • Store knives in safe place to protect edges and prevent injury.
