|Shun is Japanese for "at the peak of perfection." Shun Cutlery lives up to that tradition every day, making fine kitchen knives that are always at the peak of their perfection, too.|
For more than 100 years, the highly skilled artisans of KAI Corporation have been producing blades of unparalleled quality in the spirit of the legendary swordsmiths of Japan. For three generations, we have been dedicated to listening to the voices of our customers, providing products that contribute to a more tasteful life. Incredibly sharp edges, partnered with a stunning aesthetic, set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. In the tradition of Seki City's swordsmiths, every knife is handmade by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Every day, the legacy of ancient swordsmiths serves as inspiration to the artisans in the KAI factories. This tradition of excellence, combined with the newest technology and advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.
