BEST in SHUN KNIVES:
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.
Benefits to Classic Shun Collection:
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).
