Shun Classic 4.5″ Asian Multi-Prep


Shun’s Classic 4.5″ Asian Multi-prep knife is like nonother. In Japan, this nimble, triangular blade is called a honesuki. The narrow tip is ideal for maneuvering around bones and between joints. The wider end makes slicing easy, too.

Shun Classics are the original Shuns, the first Japanese style knives to be made available to a wider audience in North America. Instead of heavy, ponderous blades, Shun Classic blades are lighter with razor-sharp edges and crafted from advanced steel. Rather than weighty, Western Handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.

Shun Classic features beautiful Damascus-clad blades, with a cutting core of Shuns proprietary VG-MAX stainless steel, and a D-shaped ebony Pakkawood handle.  The Shun Classic series also offers the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core

  • VG_MAX is the newest in the VG line of “super steel”

Stainless Damascus cladding

  • 34 mirco-layers of steel on each side support the core (69 layers total), add stain/corrosion resistance, and help food release from the blade.

Razor-sharp 16 Degree cutting edge

  • Hand sharpened to a 16 degree angle each side for the top performance.

Full composite tang

  • Ensures Classics are lightweight, yet perfectly balanced.

Pakkawood D-shaped handles

  • This traditional Japanese style has a slight ridge on the right for a comfortable, secure grip; ebony Pakkawood is beautiful, durable, and wont harbor bacteria.
