With the limited edition Shun Engetsu (translated: full moon), Kai is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its well-known Shun brands.
Unlike your everyday, common Damascus steel, the Engetsu blade does not have a core material. Instead, its blade is made with 71 layer of Dual Core - a mixture of VG2 & VG10. This construction technique brings the steel lamination right to the edge, resulting in a microscopic serration at the blade tip for extremely fine cutting performance.
The blade pattern creates three distinct zones on the blade. A deep and intense pattern in the middle of the blade brings additional food release and low friction properties. The tip and heel have superior toughness and durability. The symmetrically shaped handle is made from pakka wood and impresses with its gallant royal blue/black wood grain and artful inlay. In combination with a forged bolster and solid end cap, the handle ensures a perfect balance when cutting.
A limited-edition santoku that’s been specially constructed for exceptional cutting performance, with three distinct zones for food-release and durability, plus a symmetrical handle for both right- and left-handed cooks.
Kai Shun adapts centuries-old samurai blacksmithing to make exceptional Japanese knives for the modern cook.
