Tokyo’s renowned Shima Steakhouse serves some of the world’s finest beef. Shun named our beautiful Shima Natural Steak Knife Set in honor of this famous steakhouse—and because we believe that the right steak knife can make even the world’s finest steak taste even better. Much of the delicious flavor in steak is contained in its juices, which are held inside by the fibers of the meat. Cutting with Shima’s razor-sharp 16° edge means that far fewer meat fibers are cut with each slice, so that more of the juices and more of the flavor remain in the steak. These lightweight steak knives feature beautiful tagayasan (wenge) wood handles and offer easy, comfortable cutting control.
A razor-sharp edge and recurved blade make cutting effortless, keeps juices in the meat
Long, 5-inch blade offers easy, one-pass slicing without crushing or tearing
High-carbon AUS8A Japanese stainless steel blade for long-lasting quality
Riveted natural tagayasan (wenge) wood handles are durable, slim, and fit the hand; handle tapers near the blade to enable a slight pinch grip for extra cutting control
