In addition to being strikingly beautiful, the Shun Reserve Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife offers you the very best in slicing performance. The long, narrow blade allows you to make a cleaner cut, which helps keep more of the juices and more of the flavor trapped in the meat. The longer blade also lets you make precise slices with a single stroke, while the narrower profile and hollow-ground indentations help the blade glide through the meat with even less friction.
The Shun Reserve Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife is part of the Shun Reserve line, a masterful blend of graceful beauty and impeccable performance. Shun Reserve knives are full-tang Western-style kitchen tools clad with 32 layers of flowing "ladder" Damascus on each side of the blade for a total of 64 layers of cladding. Yet as beautiful as this elegant Damascus is, it is Reserve's SG2 steel cutting core that makes it truly remarkable. This ultra-fine-grained steel is incredibly hard and dense - enabling Shun to make thinner blades that can be sharpened to a razor-like 16º angle. At the same time, SG2 offers unmatched edge retention. Shun Reserve offers the strength and perfectly balanced weight that Western-style knife lovers prefer. Full-tang, riveted construction provides a heftier blade that delivers both power and precision. Exceptionally beautiful, Shun Reserve knives offer supreme performance and are a pleasure to use.
