Description

This Shun Premier Set includes the beautiful Premier 8-inch Chef's Knife, Premier Combination Honing Steel, and a 6-slot Bamboo Knife Block. The Chef's Knife will probably be the most-used knife in your kitchen. This knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. The length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. The matching Premier Combination Honing Steel will help maintain your Shun-sharp edge. The bamboo block features four open slots to inspire you as you build your own custom set of Shun knives. Made of durable, lightweight, and very renewable bamboo, this bamboo block will look beautiful on your kitchen counter and its slimline design takes up less space on your countertop.

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.
