Shun Sora Chefs Knife 20cm
This unique 20cm chefs knife has less curve than a typical Western chefs knife, meaning it contacts the cutting board along more of its length making cutting more efficient.
This is the essential kitchen knife. But what you might not know is that the Sora range features traditional Japanese blade and handle shapes, and in Japan, the Sora Chefs Knife would be called a gyuto.
It is used for all the same purposes as a chefs knife for all-around food preparation. However the Sora Chefs has less curve than a Western chefs knife, which means it contacts the cutting board along more of its length, so more food is cut per slice.
The Sora has a gentle roll off the tip compared to the large roll of a Western style knife, so the Sora needs to be lifted less, making cutting more efficient. Once you try the Sora Chefs Knife, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.
All Shun Sora knives are presented in an attractive gift box.
