The Shun Classic series of knives start with a VG-MAX steel core. Shun wraps this with 34 layers of stainless on each side in a beautiful Damascus pattern. The full tang construction is wrapped with a D shaped pakka wood handle that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. A left hand version is available as well. The knife is then honed to a razors edge by hand to a 16 degree double bevel. The Shun classic knives are super sharp, super balanced and some of the best knives available in Japanese cutlery.
This is a Shun Classic 9" Combination Honing Steel.
Product is exactly as described. Shipping was extremely fast. Would order from this eBay store again.
I'm a professional chef that owns and uses expensive knives daily, this rod compliments some of my japanese knives and works beautifully, it has two surfaces one smooth for light daily honing and one with the traditional grooves for weekly maintenance
I really like the honing steel, it’s of great quality like the Shun knives. However, it will require practice for me to keep the knife at the proper angle.
The item was sent back to seller. Tracking said it was unable to be delivered because of no forwarding address. A forwarding address was available. I sent message through eBay messaging to seller May 17 with new address and offered to pay for shipping. Have not heard back from seller. Please help me with this as I really want the sharpening steel.
