The Shun Collection:

The Classic Shun Knife Line is perhaps the best known, thanks to celebrity chef Alton Brown, of the Food Network.

In fact, Kershaw, now has a series called, Shun Alton's Angle knives designed with a unique 10-degree angle that ensures firm contact with the cutting board yet allows you to keep a firm grip on the knife without hitting your knuckles on the board.
Shun Alton's Angle Knives feature:
16 layer clad stainless steel
33-layer rust-free Damascus look
Stainless steel bolsters and end caps
Available in Stainless and Classic

Benefits to Classic Shun Collection:

  • Knives are perfectly balanced
  • Damascus knives look and finish for less sticking
  • Sharper blades for faster food preparation times
  • Less cutting fatique
  • Less food damage

If you prefer a stainless steel handle, instead of the PakkaWood, take a look at Shun's stainless steel knives. (The blades in Classic and Stainless are the exact same).
