The Shun Pro Sho Series focuses exclusively on single-edged and thus traditionally Japanese blade shapes. Thanks to extremely high manufacturing standards and corrosion-resistant blade steels, this series is particularly suitable for continuous professional use. The knife's elegant design combines classic Japanese design language with contemporary features in a sublime fashion. Their blades embossed with an elaborate ornamental pattern, created using an innovative manufacturing process, form the knives' visual highlight. As in the Shun Classic Series, the elegantly shaped and functional black pakkawood handle stands in stark contrast to the blade's opulent patterns. The series received a Special Mention in the 2019 German Design Award. The knife's blade is made of corrosion-resistant VG 10 steel with a hardness of 61 (±1) HRC. Its cutting edge, honed to 45° on one side, ensures the extra sharpness required for extreme precision. The flat of the blade is hollow-ground to create a cushion of air between it and the material being cut. Combined with a wide and flat blade, this reduces friction to a minimum and guarantees perfect cutting results. The handle, made of black pakkawood, appears very elegant and fits the hand perfectly. Its asymmetrical chestnut shape enables a secure and comfortable grip whilst cutting. The integrated tang provides stability and balance.
