Description

The Shun Premier line calls to mind as 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 samurai swords 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. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.

    The most beautiful knives

    Our very first knife set is over 25 years old and we were ready for an upgrade. My husband loves to cook so I wanted to buy him a knife set that he'd appreciate. Believe me when I tell you how beautiful these knives are. Unboxing these with my husband was such an experience. The look on his face was priceless. The craftmanship on these is exquisite. It's like having an art piece in our kitchen. The details on these knives are worth every penny. They are lightweight and easy to handle and of course, slice everything like butter.

    Good starter or beginner set

    This is a solid set to dip your toes into the world of high end cutlery. The block seems well made, though I will not be using it. The set has all of the essential kitchen needs plus a couple bonus round extras like the flat paring knife and a carving/slicing knife, and the block has a couple of extra slots, say for a boning knife or another utility knife or some kind. There are three extra slots, one wide, one medium, and one skinny available to hold any specialty knives you want to round out the set.

    On to the knives themselves The handle shape is very pleasing, the pictures do not do the blade any justice, the hand hammering and Damascus pattern is a stunning combination. The knives are very sharp, I've been a chef for a long long time and managed to cut myself on day two with the bread knife because I was being dumb, but the knife grazed my skin lightly and left a tiny cut. Exercise caution if you're not used to high end blades.

    The edge geometry is nice, the bevels and tapers all work very well, the bolsters are comfortable with a pinch grip, and the handles are smooth and as I said the shape is great for all tasks. The knives all balance right at the bolster, they're perfect.

    If you're new to high end cutlery, these knives are sharpened at a different angle than knives used to be sharpened. If you're not comfortable with hand sharpening or think one of those drag through tools for scissors and lawnmower blades is the good way, please send these knives in to Shun…
