Shun Specialist Knives

Kai Wasabi Black

The Wasabi Black series has its origins in Japanese communal kitchens.

Thanks to a successful combination of enduring functionality and sharpness, robust material quality and minimalist design, the blades of this series are intended for simple and continuous use. The series owes its easy-care handling to the water-resistant plastic handle, the pleasant feel being due to the addition of bamboo powder. The matt black handle and highly polished stainless steel blade are inserted into each other and secured together by a semi-matt metal ferrule.
