The Shun Hiro 8” Chef’s Knife is the go-to knife for aspiring and professional chefs. The one knife that should be in every block, it’s a multi-purpose tool that is as at-home cutting through proteins as it is cutting through fruits and vegetables. With this phenomenal blade, you can accomplish 90% off all cutting tasks. That's why it's called the Chef.
The Shun Hiro 8" Chef Knife features 64 layers of gorgeously-patterned, mirror-polished Damascus-clad steel, which is then hand-hammered to give the blade a look reminiscent of ancient Japanese bladesmithing. Not only does the hammered tsuchime finish look rustic and intriguing, it also create air pockets which help food slide away from the blade instead of sticking to it. The premium SG2 micro-carbide cutting core offers remarkable cutting performance, achieving an extraordinary Rockwell Hardness of 64. The charcoal and crimson Pakkawood handle is contoured to be ambidextrous—a quality many chefs find only too scarcely. Each Hiro is exceptionally light, incredibly sharp, and exceptionally crafted. "Hiro" means abundance, which we think refers to all the excellent qualities these blade have.
The Shun Hiro line of high-performance cutlery and the Hiro 8" Chef Knife is handcrafted in Seki City, Japan and available in Canada exclusively at House of Knives.
