Reserve Hollow-Ground 6-in. Chef's Knife
Everything you love about Reserve in a 6-in. chef's knife
The Shun Reserve 6-in. Chef’s Knife is a simply amazing shorter chef’s knife. The first thing you’ll notice, of course, is its beautiful looks—from the striking ladder Damascus blade to the rich, striated PakkaWood handle with inlaid mosaic crest. But once you begin to work with it, you’ll also notice how well it performs. The knife’s slightly wider blade and heftier full-tang construction provides enough weight so that, even in this shorter length, you can let the knife do the cutting. It’s perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and proteins. The wider blade also keeps knuckles off the cutting board and it offers plenty of belly for rocking cuts.
The Shun Reserve 6-in. Chef’s 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.
