In Japanese, Sora means "sky." With Sora's proprietary Composite Blade Technology, this beautiful series offers sky-high value by bringing together a VG10 three-layer san mai cutting edge with a polished Japanese 420J stainless steel upper.

This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed most - on the cutting edge.

The Sora line features a traditional handle design with textured TPE which provides excellent grip, balance, and easy maintenance. Topped on the end of the handle is the Shun logo in stainless steel which enhances and balances the handle.

Also called a gyuto, this Japanese knife features a less curved blade than a western chef knife that contacts the cutting board along more of its length to cut more food with every slice. The Sora also has a gentle roll off the tip, so it needs to be lifted less and cutting is more efficient.
