The Shun Pro Sho series focuses exclusively on blades with asymmetrical sharpening, i.e. traditional Japanese shapes. Thanks to the high quality of workmanship and materials, this series is particularly suitable for intensive professional use. The elegant design of the knife masterfully combines the classic Japanese formal language with Western components. The artistic ornamental motif that decorates the blades, made with an innovative production process, gives a great visual impact to these knives. The black pakka wood handle, the same used for the Shun Classic series, with its minimalist and elegant shape, deliberately contrasts with the decorative richness of the blade. The series was awarded the German Design Award in 2019.
The black pakka handle is very elegant and ergonomic. Its asymmetrical chestnut shape allows a secure and comfortable grip during cutting. The continuous tang ensures stability and balance.
