In Japan, “shun” (pronounced shoon) is a concept that is at once very simple and yet imbued with deep meaning. It is the word used to describe local, seasonal food at the very peak of its flavor and freshness. “Shun” is a time, the exact moment when a fruit has reached its perfect ripeness, when a vegetable is at its very best, when meat is at its most flavorful. Home cooks and professional chefs alike celebrate shun in their kitchens, eagerly awaiting each season’s bounty and serving every ingredient in its proper time. We named our fine cutlery Shun to honor this tradition of seasonal, mindful eating and as a mark of our dedication to making kitchen cutlery that is always at the peak of its perfection, too. Shun Cutlery is from Japan’s Kai Corporation. For over 100 years, this family company has been making fine blades in the tradition of the legendary samurai swordsmiths of ancient Japan. Each Shun takes 100 or more handcrafted steps to complete. Yet even with the weight of ancient tradition behind each blade, Shun cutlery is also thoroughly modern. We craft our fine kitchen cutlery using state-of-the-art technology, the most advanced premium-quality steels, and handle materials that are both beautiful and durable. For kitchen cutlery at the peak of performance, at the peak of beauty—and always at the peak of perfection, choose Shun.
