Shun Classic 6" Mezzaluna Knife (without board), model DM0736.
Note: This open-stock knife does not include the box or board. It is recommended for use with a mezzaluna board having a bowl of eight or more inches in diameter, though it can also be used with a traditional board.
Shun's Classic line brings performance and elegance to the kitchen that must be experienced to be believed. I've yet to encounter any cutlery that feels so natural, looks so good, or performs so well. This mezzaluna easily chops and minces vegetables and herbs. Whether to start or supplement a set, this knife is certain to change your culinary experience just as it has for professional chefs worldwide.
Shun crafts their Classic Mezzaluna Knife using VG-10 steel which is layered with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel on each side of the blade. During the finishing process the layers are exposed while creating a beautiful pattern that not only protects the VG-10 core, it simultaneously creates a blade surface that resists food sticking to it--a real time-saver for kitchen preparation. Pakkawood handles provide a comfortable, controlled grip. Combine all of these features with the sharpest Japanese edge available and you have perfection.
