The innovative Seki Magoruku Composite series consists of 8 blade shapes with double-sided polished blades. The beautifully finished blade is made from the combination of two different steels, which creates a fascinating contrast between the mirror-polished blade and the satined opposite side. The mirror-polished core of the blade is made from VG MAX Steel with a hardness of 61+1HRC and the satined outer material from SUS420J2 steel: a combination that guarantees a high corrosion resistance and the long-lasting performance of these blades.
The production process of the Composite blades is based on a new technology in the aircraft construction sector and guarantees high resistance and extreme precision. The two steel grades are jointed through a particular copper brazing procedure. the subtle copper line remaining between the steel grades adds an additional special touch.
IN JAPAN, THE BLADE HAS LONG BEEN MORE THAN JUST A TOOL; THE WAY OF THE BLADE IS A WAY OF LIFE.
In Japanese, “Shun” (pronounced “shoon” and rhymes with “moon”) is the precise moment during the year when any particular food is at the peak of its perfection. Shun is when fruit is at its sweetest, when vegetables are perfectly ripe, perfectly fresh, and perfectly delicious. Shun is in harmony with the natural rhythms of the seasons. Shun Cutlery proudly takes its name from this Japanese culinary tradition of preparing and eating the very freshest food at the perfect “shun” moment. It is a tradition we live up to every day, making fine kitchen knives that are always at the peak of their perfection, too.
IN THE SPIRIT OF THE LEGENDARY SWORD SMITHS OF JAPAN
From the legendary samurai swords said to contain the soul of the warrior who wielded them to the handcrafted kitchen knives of today, the exquisite craftsmanship of Japanese blades is admired worldwide. Since the 13th century, Seki City has been the heart of the Japanese cutlery industry. For more than 100 years, it has also been home to the Kai Corporation, the makers of Shun fine cutlery. Inspired by the blademaking traditions of ancient Japan, todays highly skilled Shun artisans produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty.
A WORK OF ART THAT TAKES MORE THAN 100 HANDCRAFTED STEPS TO COMPLETE
Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. In the great tradition of Seki’s sword smiths, every knife is handmade by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Every day, the legacy of ancient sword smiths serves as inspiration to the artisans in the Kai factories. Kai’s 100-year-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.
