Shun Stainless Review

Shun Stainless

The Shun Stainless Series

The Shun Stainless series features all your favorite quality craftsmanship and Japanese design with a slick more modern look.  The Stainless series feature a stainless steel handle accenting the blade for a minimalist modern finish.  Kosher environments may prefer the full stainless steel structure as it entirely resists absorption or transfer of bacteria.

The slick all stainless steel structure makes the Shun Stainless series a favorite in professional settings such as restaurants and is a distinctive choice of many culinary experts.  The block set as shown makes a prestigious gift.

Shun Stainless Review

Pro: I love the look of these knives.  I’ve had a bad experience in the past with splitting wood handles and I feel more confident putting these into the dishwasher as there is no wood in the structure of the knife.  They are great.

Con: I find the all metal structure to be slippery.  I prefer to have a wooden grip.
