Description

Blade

The Shun Minamo Series forms an exquisitely elegant and individual 
addition to the premium class of the Shun Premier Series of knives. 
The series unites Japanese and European elements in an especially 
artful manner. Tim Mälzer came up with the idea to develop a combination 
of the typically Japanese Santoku knife and the classic European chef’s knife. This fusion served as the basis for three distinct blade shapes. 
The series is distinguished by a very clear form language. The combination of a black handle with a specially designed blade embellished 
with a fine Damascus grain makes every knife appear like an entirely unique object.

The series' name originates from this fine grain, which is reminiscent 
of water's surface rippling in the rain (Jap.: Minamo). The blade's structure, composed of a hard core, and enveloped 
in a flexible Damascus steel ensures the utmost sharpness, long-lasting 
cutting ability, and ideal performance.

The Shun Minamo blade's core consists of extremely hard VG-MAX steel (61 (±1) HRC), wrapped in 32 layers of Damascus steel. The blades' high-gloss finish is completed with a Damascus grain. The combination of Santoku and cooking knife's hybrid nature, embodied in the blade's rectangular form, easily allows both rocking movements as well as the accurate chopping of cutting materials. The blades are double-edged.
Thanks to its symmetrical shape, the black pakkawood handle is suitable for both left- and right-handed users. The slight arch on the handle's underside enables a comfortable fit. The forged tang ensures a perfect balance between blade and handle.
