he Shun DM0778 Classic Brisket Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task. The Shun Classic Brisket Knife is the perfect tool for a barbeque or family feast. It’s ideal for trimming and slicing larger cuts of meat, including brisket, ham, turkey, and roasts. The high-performance Japanese AUS10A blade is highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel, enabling it to take and hold its Shun-sharp edge longer. The Shun Classic Brisket Knife?s long, narrow blade makes it easy to cut slices in a single pass to ensure more of the juices?and flavor?stay inside the meat. The long, razor-sharp blade means slices will look perfect since there?s no need to saw back and forth. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help food release more easily and the rounded tip makes the knife safer and easier to use. Full-tang construction ensures the Classic Brisket Knife is strong and well balanced. PakkaWood? handles with an ebony finish complete the brisket knife’s handsome look. The included wooden saya, or sheath, protects the blade and makes it simple to transport to a barbeque or celebration taking place away from home.
