Description: Ajikiri are named for the horse mackerel, "aji", that they are traditionally used to cut. This traditionally designed knife can be used for those cutting jobs that would be performed by a paring knife in the Western kitchen.

Shun Pro is kitchen cutlery for the ultimate knife connoisseur. It features the design preferred by professional Japanese Chefs - a single-sided, beveled edge with a hollow-ground back. The single bevel design means an incredibly sharp edge that's easy to maintain. The hollow-ground back creates an air pocket between the blade and the food being cut. The result is a clean cut with no crushing or friction to the food. This knife is created using the Hon Yaki technique, which creates an extremely durable, long-lasting edge.

  • VG-10 "super steel" is composed of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon and vanadium for a keen, long-lasting edge
  • Black PakkaWood handles provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance
  • 'D' shape Black PakaWood handles provide beauty and function. The 'D' shape is designed for right handed users and provides maximum comfort and control
  • Stainless steel bolsters and end caps for durability, balance and strength
