The Shun Classic Fillet Flex (DM0761) knife is used to fillet and prepare fish. It features a long and very flexible blade which allows it to move easily along the backbone and under the skin of fish. Whether sea bass, salmon, tilapia, or trout, the razor sharp fillet knife will work quickly to get it ready for the barbeque or grill. The length of blade is easier to control and makes it possible to take the entire skin off most fillets with a single pass without having to saw back and forth, creating a less desirable cut. Smaller filleting knives are great for slicing paper thin slices of lox and slicing foods for garnishing.
This meat cleaver from the Shun Classic collection can stand up to ribs, whole poultry, and other bone-in cuts of meat. Chop meat for stew or bones for stock, and use the back of the cleaver to tenderize cuts.
The high performance blade is made from AUS8A steel, which offers the strength and hardness to handle both meat and bone. This high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel is hand-sharpened to a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle. The addition of vanadium makes steel harder, tougher, and more easily sharpened to a finer edge. Vanadium also increases wear resistance, so the blade stays sharper longer. The ebony PakkaWood handle is made from genuine hardwood and resin. The addition of resin makes the wood moisture-resistant, strong, and durable. The D-shape of the handle is designed to fit comfortably in your hand.
The Shun Classic collection offers a wide assortment of traditional and modern blade shapes, making these knives a perfect fit for any kitchen. Each knife in the Shun Classic collection boasts all of the essential features that make Shun a top choice of professional chefs.
