Kai USA To Introduce Shun Blond Cutlery Series

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.
