Shun Premier Chefs Knife
Shaped in the traditional European style, Shun's Premier Santoku is an all purpose knife suitable for chopping, shredding, cutting, slicing and cubing all meat, fish and vegetables.
Shun's Premier Santoku knife was ranked #1 as tested in December 2014 by Stiftung Warentest, one of the world's leading independent consumer goods evaluator.
Handcrafted in Japan, Shun knives feature supersharp blades and comfortable handles that provide excellent support and control.
Each Shun knife blade features a special VG-MAX cutting core that is clad each side with 34 layers of ultra thin high carbon stainless steel (total 69 layers). The Damascus type pattern emerges during the initial hand grinding process and is completed with tiny beads of glass being blasted at the steel to produce a stunning finish.
Shun Premier knives with their thin, lightweight blades are distinguished by their beautiful hand-hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) that promotes easier cutting and assists with food release from the blade.
Comfortable handles suited to right and left handed use are made from durable walnut finish PakkaWood, and capped with a Shun logo engraved stainless steel cap to aid durability and excellent weight distribution.
NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens. Shun knives are provided with a limited lifetime warranty from manufacturing defects.
