Kai USA will introduce the Shun Classic Blond line of cutlery at the upcoming Inspired Home Show in Chicago.
According to the company, the Shun Classic Blond series features a lighter, brighter look. It marries the 69-layer Damascus-clad blades of Shun’s most popular series with pakkawood handles in a light and natural wood tone.
It features the company’s VG-MAX steel, which provides edge retention and is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted to reveal the pattern of the layered steel, the company noted.
The initial Blond series includes: 8-inch chef’s knife, paring knife, 6-inch utility knife, a bread knife, a santoku, a combination honing steel and a 5-piece block set.
