With Ayu, you will receive a knife that is packed with features and beautiful craftsmanship. Its custom-style, Japanese ayu (“sweetfish”) blade pattern shines in the kitchen.

Shun’s Composite Blade Technology was also used to add SKD11 steel to the tip and the heel. This high-carbon steel provides maximum cutting performance in those high-impact areas.

The handle received just as much attention. It is made of ultra-high-durometer urethane with a carbon fiber overlay. These materials balance the knife perfectly and offer stunning beauty alongside the blade.

Shun Ayu will be sold at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $2,250. Reserve yours soon.
