Features of Shun DM0706 Classic 8 Inch Chef’s Knife
This product has three variations. The first one is of 6 inch followed by a 8 inch knife which we are talking about here in this review. There is another one of 10 inch which is for advanced use. If you are using it in your home then the 8 inch one should be perfect for you. You can also choose the 6 inch model for your home kitchen but you do not need a 10 inch knife for your home unless you run a cafe or a restaurant.
When we are talking about a knife that is built for chefs, we can always expect quality from the knife and that is exactly what you will receive from this knife. The building quality is outstanding as it has pure VG-10 stainless steel body along with 32 layers of carbon and stainless steel.
The features are not the only benefits you will receive from this product. Let’s have a look at some of the other pros of this knife:
- Perfect size
- Pure stainless steel
- 16 layers to provide strength
- Produced in Japan
- Durable (Holds sharpness for long)
Now let’s have a look at some of the negative parts of this product:
- Price is a bit high for one knife
- The product is not dishwasher safe
- The knife is only great for the right handed people
If you are looking for a set of knives then obviously, this is not one of those as it is a single one but if you are looking for one single knife which will satisfy most of your needs then this is the one that you need to target. The price is on the higher end but the quality is too. Overall, this is a good one to go for if you are not looking for a set and one knife is enough for you. If you are a chef, you can also look at the 10 inch mode.
