Product Description & Reviews
The Shun Hiro SG2 Santoku Knife is smaller than the full-sized santoku, making it an in-between size and weight that is perfect for most medium-sized kitchen tasks. Slicing baby carrots, chopping shallots, cutting butter or chocolate. If you have smaller hands or simply prefer a lighter knife, this one is sure to become one of your favorite, go-to kitchen knives.Blade Length: 5.5-inchesBlade Type: Fine EdgeBlade Material: Stainless Damascus with SG2 CoreHandle Material: PakkawoodShun Hiro SG2 SeriesCombines striking beauty with peerless performance. In Japanese, the name Hiro is known as "abundant," "generous," and "prosperous." The Hiro cutting core is made of SG2 micro-carbide steel. This ultra-fine-grained steel is incredibly hard and dense, enabling Shun to make thinner blades that can be sharpened to a razor-like 16° cutting angle. At the same time, SG2 offers unmatched edge retention, so it's superb for kitchen use. Due to this combination of performance and durability, SG2 is considered by many to be the world's best blade steel for use in kitchen knives. In 150 handcrafted steps, every curve has been meticulously smoothed and rounded, from spine to heel, while each cutting edge has been precisely sharpened to make every cutting task a pleasure. True to its Eastern heritage, the Shun Hiro's handle follows straight off the blade for a grip Asian-style knife enthusiasts prefer. Made of premium charcoal-colored PakkaWood with deep crimson striations, the handle is also adorned with an inlaid brass-and-steel Samurai family crest mosaic and a mirror-polished nickel silver bolster and end cap. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
