Shun Classic

Forged by the skilful hands of expert craftsmen, Giesser blades feature seamless steel tangs, ergonomic handles made from robust materials and meticulously sharpened blades that are so sharp they effortlessly slice through everything from delicate vegetables to tough meats.

The Shun Classic series features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun Classic's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
