Shun DM0706 Review
A stunningly attractive Japanese chefs knife from Shun, this 8-inch knife has a double-beveled blade and a black laminated PakkaWood handle in a stylish D-shape. Comfortable to grip, especially if you have smaller hands, this knife’s rounded handle is designed not to rotate in your hand. The VG-10 steel used in the construction is harder and less brittle than other types of steel. Resistant to rust, this chefs knife is safe to wash in the dishwasher, but it requires weekly sharpening maintenance. It runs for $139.95.
