Description

Description

The Shun Classic Bird's Beak knife or Tournée knife is the classic tool for making decorative cuts—such as radish rosettes or fluted mushrooms—as well as for cutting out blemishes, peeling, and slicing soft fruits such as nectarines or plums. The curved shape lets you cut close to the peel, keeping more of the fruit or vegetable you’re peeling. It's a specialty knife to be sure, but if presentation is important to your cooking, you'll want to make this knife part of your collection.

The Shun Cutlery Bird's Beak Knife features a VG-Max "super" steel blade core clad with 34 folded layers per side of stainless Damascus steel. The blade is ground and bead blasted to reveal the beautiful flowing pattern of the Damascus. It features a D-shaped Ebony PakkaWood handle, which is resin-impregnated natural hardwood designed for moisture resistance and longevity. While the D-shaped handle is designed specifically for right-handed use, left-handed users may find it comfortable in hand as well. Shun does sell select left-hand specific handles in the reverse grip.
