Shun Cutlery

Shun Cutlery

Anybody who watches the Food Network might be familiar with Shun Cutlery. In fact, anybody who is serious about cooking and having the only the best items in their kitchen should be familiar with that brand of cutlery. It is a division of Kershaw, and the designer has won multiple awards for both his Kershaw knives and his Shun knives. Shun also has a very famous spokesperson, who has designed his own line of kitchen cutlery with Shun, Alton Brown. For many people, Alton Brown’s seal of approval is more than enough to recommend the brand of knife, and more information isn’t necessary. But there is still plenty of information about Shun Cutlery that you should be interested in hearing. For example, the knives have the so-called Damascus look. This is because the blades are made out of sixteen layers of SUS410 High Carbon Stainless Steel pounded to 3/1000th of an inch and then "clad" on each side of the VG10 core.

Shun Cutlery is not cheap, but you get what you pay for in all things, and knives are no exception. If you want a sturdy knife that has a good balance and keeps its edge, you’re going to have to invest in the set. There are some vendors that might offer sales on Shun products, but usually, unless you can find a really great deal, they are going to cost several hundred dollars. But if Alton Brown says they’re worth the cost, then they are definitely worth the cost. The man knows whereof he speaks.
