The Shun Classic Chef Knife
The chef knife is the main tool in any kitchen because of the variable task that can be completed. In fact, several chefs will even use the chef knife in place of a paring or utility knife. It’s not because they can not afford the knives designed for those task, but because the chef knife becomes an attachment to their arm. The Shun classic chef knife provides an extention to the chef hand and fits comfortably in the palm of the chef. This allows for the chef to feel more confident and comfortable when preparing dishes. The Shun classic is a beautiful example of the essential knives in the kitchen, and should be considered as a knife in your cutlery collection.
