Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. Shun kitchen knives are made by KAI Corporation, which has been handcrafting blades in the spirit of the legendary sword smiths of Seki City, Japan for over 100 years. Every Shun knife is handmade by a team of highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps. This tradition of Japanese sword-making excellence in Seki City is combined with technology and advanced materials in each Shun knife.
The new range of Seki Magoroku Imayo knives, with their extremely sharp cutting edge and luxury hammered design, consists of four knives perfect for the modern lifestyle.
The blades of the Imayo knives are made of 1K6 steel (56 ±1 HRC). Blades fashioned from this material are especially resistant to corrosion due to their high chromium content. The greater carbon content ensures a better edge holding ability.
The handle of the Imayo is made of laminated, reinforced wood for a comfortable feel when cutting. The handle is extremely water-resistant, thanks to the use of high-quality natural wood which is treated by a special process.
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.
