The Shun Ayu 8" Kiritsuke - Limited Edition (TS0706) has made waves in the kitchen knife world after winning the 2017 Kitchen Knife of the Year Award. Long awaited by Shun enthusiasts everywhere, the Ayu is finally here.

The Ayu is named after the ayu "sweetfish" of Japan, which inspired the intricate and beautiful fish scale pattern of Damascus clad steel. There are 71 layers of two high-carbon stainless steels that are layered and forged together to create this pattern. Additionally, using Shun's proprietary Composite Blade Technology, the heel and tip of the Ayu are made with an entirely different SKD11 high-carbon steel to bolster the toughness and cutting performance in these high-impact areas.

The handle of the Ayu is hand cast from ultra-high-durometer urethane with a satin finish and a carbon fibre inlay. Every Shun Ayu is custom processed and handcrafted, making it an extremely limited edition and exceptional knife. Comes in a gorgeous wooden case.
