Limited Edition Shun Hana Now Available
The Shun Hana Limited Edition Chef's Knife was named the 2015 Blade Show's Kitchen Knife of the Year. This stunningly beautiful knife represents Shun's next iteration of our Dual Core technology. With a dramatic new forged blade pattern and an extraordinary tagayasan (“iron sword wood”) handle, this Limited Edition knife takes Shun’s beauty and performance to the next level.
Hana's Damascus blade is made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. Seventy-one alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to enable Shun to create the gorgeous raying pattern across the blade. Because this is not cladded construction, all 71 layers of this premium steel go all the way to the edge of the blade. During normal use, the two steels will wear at slightly different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that Hana’s extremely sharp edge feels sharper longer.
Hana's thin, light, and strong blade is paired with a genuine tagayasan wood handle. In Japan, tagayasan is also known as "iron sword wood" for it's denseness, hardness, and durability. Shun adds CNC-lathed PakkaWood® accents, in a traditional style, as well as a mirror-polished stainless steel endcap for both beauty and balance.
This breathtaking piece of the knife master's art comes in its own bamboo presentation box with enameled Shun pin and Certificate of Authenticity.
