IN JAPAN, THE BLADE HAS LONG BEEN MORE THAN JUST A TOOL; THE WAY OF THE BLADE IS A WAY OF LIFE.
In Japanese, “Shun” (pronounced “shoon” and rhymes with “moon”) is the precise moment during the year when any food is at the peak of perfection. Shun is when fruit is at its sweetest, when vegetables perfectly ripe. Shun is in harmony with the natural rhythms of the seasons. Shun Cutlery proudly takes its name from this Japanese culinary tradition of preparing and eating the very freshest food at the perfect “shun” moment. It is a tradition they live up to every day, making fine kitchen knives that are always at the peak of their perfection.
IN THE SPIRIT OF THE LEGENDARY SWORD SMITHS OF JAPAN
From the legendary samurai swords said to contain the soul of the warrior who wielded them to the handcrafted kitchen knives of today, the exquisite craftsmanship of Japanese blades is admired worldwide.
Since the 13th century, Seki City has been the heart of the Japanese cutlery industry. For more than 100 years, it has also been home to the Kai Corporation, the makers of Shun fine cutlery. Inspired by the blade-making traditions of ancient Japan, today’s highly skilled Shun artisans produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty.
A WORK OF ART THAT TAKES MORE THAN 100 HANDCRAFTED STEPS TO COMPLETE
Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. In the great tradition of Seki’s sword smiths, every knife is handmade by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Every day, the legacy of ancient sword smiths serves as inspiration to the artisans in the Kai factories. Kai’s 100-year-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.
