This just may be the perfect steak knife
In the past, steak knives were serrated to maintain their sharpness, which meant tearing the meat and turning a juicy steak dry and stringy. Switching to a fine-edge blade meant the knife would dull quickly when used to cut against the ceramic or glass plate. Shun created the Ultimate Steak knife to answer this steak-knife quandary. The Ultimate Steak knife has both a 16° blade angle and a low-frequency serration. It slices a steak cleanly and beautifully, yet without dulling the knife prematurely—because only the tips of the serrations touch the plate. The result is a delicious, juicy bite of steak, and amazing edge retention.
The Shun Classic Ultimate Steak Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line 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'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. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
