Shun Classic 8 Inch Chef Knife
The Shun classic 8 inch Knife is one of the common chef knives in the culinary industry. This simple beauty is great for starting a new knife collection or for new chefs and cooks in the industry. The Classic Series is a great knife to begin with and get comfortable with knives. The D-shape handle is typical for most knives and creates a familiar feeling in the chef’s hand. This can also provide insight in finding new alternatives to knife handles. For instance, I started my first collection with a Shun 8 inch Chef Knife and after heavy use I fount the I preferred the octagon shaped handle better. When using chef knife on a regular basis it is important to find one that fix well in your hand and is comfortable at all times. Shun Classic Chef Knifes are great starter knives because they are durable.
The shun classic series is the foundation of the Shun Reputation. The Shun classic knives are normally the first experience every chef has with Shun cutlery. These knives are also great knives for home cooks who want to change-up their kitchen knife block. The home cook may be used to cheap knock off chef knives that get dull quickly and chip easily. The Shun classic is a great series for home cooks who want to take their cutlery game up a step or for new passionate chefs in training. There is also a great student set that makes a great gift for anyone who wants to be a chef, or new culinary students. It only makes sense to provide new chefs with the quality knives they will need to have to become great.
I also wanted to share this video that discusses the features of the Shun classic knife series. This Video is from Chef Chris Cosentino, who I find to be a well-respected Chef in the culinary industry. Let me know what you think of this video.
