Shun Dual Core Knives

The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade 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 create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Core’s extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched indentations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.

Picking The Right Knife

The Shun Blue Steel and Dual Core series provide excellent knives for any kitchen knife collection. The blade steel is different from the other Shun knife lines and provides different characteristics to each knife. These knives provide the same reputation that Shun has come to be known for, with a touch more awesome. It’s important to remember that every knife is different for every person, choose the knife that fits your hand and your style. I also like to think that Shun knives have personality as well, and I believe that every knife contributes to the chef’s personality. A classy Dual Core knife works great with chef’s that has 5 star restaurant recipes. The Shun Kanso knife is great for the chef who focuses on the local farming and rustic style cooking. Every knife contributes to the personality and confidence of the chef. The Dual core and blue steel knives provide an elegant design, unique blade construction, and high quality professional razor-sharp edges.

The difficult part of buying the Shun Blue Steel or Dual Core knife line is deciding on which knife to buy first. These knives are beautiful and add value to the kitchen knife collection. The quality and durability allow the chef to continue preparing the meals of a life time. Remember to check out our other articles on more information on how each knife is used for. Selecting the perfect knife is never a right or wrong decision, it is a matter of picking a knife you enjoy using, comfortable to use, and provides the performance you desire. There are plenty of inexpensive knives available that will provide some performance, however, there are times where you may prefer more reliable and higher quality knives. Research and find the best price for your knives, especially for Shun knives. There are many retailers available and several different ways to get coupons and discounts. Research each knife, see what other chefs think about the knife you are considering.
