Holding Shun Knives Properly

A Professional Grip Makes Cutting Easier
Here's the right way to get a grip on your Kershaw chef's knife.
 How to hold a Kershaw Shun Knife

Hold the knife so that the back of the blade is gripped firmly between your thumb and index finger. The rest of your fingers wrap lightly around the handle and are cradled in the palm.

This grip puts the control of the knife directly over its balance point, giving you greater safety and cutting ease. The knife becomes an extension of your arm and hand, and repetitive jobs like chopping and mincing become much less tiring.


Keeping Kershaw Knives Sharp

How to Use Your Sharpening Steel
How to sharpen your Kershaw knives

It's easy to keep your Kershaw cutlery sharp with a steel.

1) Place the tip of the steel firmly against the kitchen counter with the handle up.

2) Place the knife against the top of the steel at about a 20° angle.

3) Starting with the base of the blade and maintaining that angle, pull the knife down and across the steel in a slight arc. Maintain very light pressure.

4) Repeat this on the other side of the blade.

5) Then alternate sharpening both sides of the blade another 6 or 7 times.

Kai Industries Co., Ltd.

KAI Corporation, a subsidiary of Tokyo based KAI Group (Kai Industries Co., Ltd.), has been Japan's premier blade producer for more than 90 years. KAI factories are located in Seki City (Gifu Prefecture), Japan's famous center for cutlery and other bladed tools (comparable to Solingen in Germany). Blade smiths there have been producing fine cutlery for more than 700 years. Many of the descendants of those smiths continue their tradition of excellence at KAI.

KAI Industries also has joint ventures and/or production agreements with companies such as WMF, Henkel, Unilever, and P&G, primarily in China, where it manufactures some of its goods. Its U.S. factory primarily produces pocket knives.
