“D” Shape PakkaWood® Handle-provides both beauty and function. The “D” shape offers maximum comfort and control. PakkaWood® provides strength, stability, and moisture resistance. It is manufactured by impregnating hardwood veneers with phenolic, thermosetting resins and fusing them into solid, wood-grained structure for premium applications.
Designed to effortlessly slice delicate morsels of fresh fish, this elegant Yanagiba or Sashimi knife is an essential tool for any home sushi chef. An exceptionally long narrow blade measuring 11-4/5 inches in length carries a razor-sharp edge to cut into soft raw fish without crushing or damaging and finishes with a pointed tip for intricate tasks. Leveraging a 90-year history of superior workmanship, Shun knives are precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Combining high-carbon stain-resistant “super steel” with a one-sided, single-bevel design results in an exceptionally strong, sharp blade. Flipping the knife over shows a subtly concave backside created to resist sticking and to avoid damaging food. Forming a comfortable D-shaped hold, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin comprise the unique ebony PakkaWood handle. In addition, a traditionally offset stainless-steel bolster protects knuckles while a steel end-cap finishes the piece. Although dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. The knife measures approximately 17 by 2 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty. –Amy Arnold
