The Kai Shun series of chef‘s knives is one of the most comprehensive Damascus steel series worldwide and highly appreciated by top class professionals as well as ambitious hobby chefs. Kai Shun professional chef’s knives are made from specific stainless Damascus steel with 32 layers. The core layer is made from V-Gold-10-steel. This is an extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and corrosion- resistant steel that gives the blade a sharpness that is second to none. The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Kai Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material. This sharpness together with the well-balanced weight of the knife makes for tireless work.
