Reserve 8-in. Chef's Knife
Precision and performance
The blade of the Shun Reserve 8-in. Chef’s Knife is slightly oversized to provide the heft and precision Western-style knife lovers prefer. The larger blade also enables us to show off the exquisite nickel silver/stainless steel “ladder” Damascus. Made with ultra-premium materials and extraordinary fit & finish, this beautiful chef’s knife also offers the highest performance. It’s an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks.
The length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping most sizes of fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The slightly wider blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is helpful when transferring cut food from board to pan. The Shun Reserve 8-in. Chef’s Knife has a deep belly curve so that rocking cuts are fast and easy.
The Shun Reserve Bread 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 16° 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.
