Shun Premier Santoku 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 santoku knife is indispensable for chopping and slicing fresh vegetables and small cuts of meat, combining the benefits of a chef's knife and cleaver in one. Blades feature a core of VG-10 "super steel" clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of high-carbon 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. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level standards of professional kitchens.

My "go-to" knife!
December 26, 2011
This is my favorite knife in my kitchen and it's my only Shun knife thus far, but I hope to add more to my cutlery collection over the years. It is an object of beauty! Love it! More importantly it is lightweight and SHARP. Chops with ease and precision. Easy to hand-wash.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Sharpness, Shape
