Shun Cutlery

A great responsive ecommerce experience for Shun Cultery.

Inspired by the blade-making traditions of ancient Japan, today’s highly skilled Shun artisans produce blades of unparalleled quality and exquisite sharpness, each requiring at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete.

Beautiful example of an ecommerce website that’s also responsive. It’s a clean and simple approach to the design that echo’s brilliantly the subject matter of the Japanese knives. I like the slight parallax feel on the main image and nav design as you start to scroll too. Small touches of perfection make the whole design really shine.
