The Shun Premier Chef’s Knife is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
The Shun Premier 7-Piece Essential Block Set gives you all the must-have pieces of kitchen cutlery in one beautiful bamboo block. In addition to key pieces like the Shun Premier Paring, Utility, and Chef's Knives, the set also includes the Bread Knife with its low-frequency serrations and the handy Herb Shears. The shears are perfect for snipping herbs, of course, but you'll be amazed at how often they come in handy for other things, too. This essential set comes in its own laminated bamboo block with extra open slots so you can continue to expand your Shun Premier collection. Bamboo offers easy-care performance. It absorbs very little moisture and doesn’t shrink or swell like other hardwoods, making it ideal for kitchen accessories.
This elegant set provides the essential knives and kitchen tools for a well-equipped kitchen.
