Fans of Japanese knives will like the newly redesigned Shun Pro line. Shun Pro knives feature high carbon VG 10 steel known for holding an edge longer than comparable knives. The handles are made of PakkaWood for a comfortable grip. The blade now features a "graffiti" finish that is both attractive and distinctive. Shun has a long tradition of excellence in quality and design that gives artful status to everyday tools.
