Can the right knife really make food taste better? Yes. The Shun Classic 9-in. Hollow Ground Slicing Knife's long, narrow blade allows you to make a cleaner cut, which helps keep more of the juices—and more of the flavor—in the meat. The longer blade lets you make precise slices with a single stroke, while the narrower profile and hollow-ground indentations help the blade glide through the meat with even less friction. Producing thin, beautiful, even slices of meat is not hard at all—when you have the right knife.
Hollow-ground indentations help slices release from the blade
