Use & Care:

  • Shun knives should be used in a smooth, slicing motion, not in a chopping, piercing or stabbing motion.
  • Do not use Shun knives on hard materials like bones, joints, frozen foods, or hard vegetables like pumpkin.
  • Use a good cutting board made of wood, wood composite, or polyethylene to retain a sharp edge for longer.
  • Hand-wash knives with gentle dish soap and do not leave them submerged in soapy water.
  • Store knives in a block, case, or magnetic holder to protect the blade and ensure safety.
  • Regular honing with a Shun Honing Steel is necessary to prolong the life of the blade, and sharpening should only be done when necessary using a Shun or Seki Magoroku Whetstone or by a professional sharpener.
