This Granton Chefs knife is extra-special because of the hollow-ground indentations on the side of the blade. They create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut. If you’ve had problems with sticking, try this hollow-ground blade. Otherwise, use this Granton Chefs Knife as you would any other chefs knife—for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. With its curved belly, the chefs knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
The Shun Classic series features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun Classic's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
