Shun Premier Chef's Knives

The Shun Premier collection is distinguished by hand-hammered blades and walnut-colored PakkaWood handles that evoke the artistry of traditional hand-forged knives. Hand-crafted in Japan, the blades are thin and lightweight. This chef's knife is a true kitchen workhorse designed for comfort, ease of use and razor-sharp performance. Blades feature a core of VG-10 "super steel" clad on each side with 69 microthin layers of stainless-steel. The striking hand-hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and helps to quickly release food from the blade. Walnut-finish PakkaWood handles have a two-position design, providing a trigger grip for pull cuts and the perfect balance point for a pinch grip. Stainless-steel end caps embossed with the Shun logo add stability, strength and wide weight distribution from end to end.

Best kitchen knife ever!
November 16, 2013
Took advantage of the 20% off any item to purchase this excellent knife. This knife is the sharpest cutting instrument I have ever owned...beautiful, and unique in design and flawless craftsmanship. I may begin a collection of these knives as they are so amazing...expensive but so worth it.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Versatile, Sharpness, Weight

Love, love, love this knife!!
November 24, 2012
For the non-pro chef who spends lots of time in the kitchen, this knife is a lifesaver. It's absolutely gorgeous and supremely sharp. I'm no pro, and I've never used pro knives, but I've used an awful lot of the upper-end prosumer knives. I'm sold on Japanese steel after using this knife. I will definitely be upgrading the rest of my steel as other knives wear out. I never realized how easy onions are to slice until I tried it with this knife--no more slips, since the blade slips cleanly into whatever you touch it to. I honestly cannot find a fault with this knife.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Appearance
