Shun Premier Santoku Knife 18cm
The Shun Premier Santoku Knife is a traditional Japanese styled, all purpose knife. The straight blade makes this knife perfect for chopping.
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.
