Shun’s Sora line truly shows how flawless and gorgeous Cutting Edge technology can be. With Sora, the blade is actually 2 pieces of steel that are braze welded together. The VG10 san mai cutting edge is joined to the upper part of the blade made of Japanese 420J stainless steel. The result is an affordable knife with razor sharp performance. Add to it an ergonomic handle made of a PP/TPE polymer blend which is durable and will not slip even when your hands are wet.
