Description

The Shun Premier Chef's Knife will probably be the most-used knife in your kitchen. If you're like most cooks, you'll want to find the one that feels like an extension of your arm. This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier's thinner blades makes this chef's knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. 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 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.

    Great cooking utensil to work with

    This utensil is a great addition to my kitchen, it looks good and at 10" gives me the freedom of movement to slice, dice and cut easier. I don't think I could go back to an 8" chef knife.

    This knife cuts so easy and is super sharp. Not to mention very beautiful to see in action

    Great balance and light weight.

    This was bought as a gift to my wife. She has arthritis in her hands. The balance, light weight, and ability to maintain a razor sharp edge is all a plus. We have gradually replaced her standard Shun knives for the Premier knives giving her other Shun knives to our grandson who also loves to cook. The Premier is a great aid to her cooking which she loves to do.

    Outstanding Knife!

    This knife is everything you want in a chef's knife: razor sharp, stays sharp, comfortable handle and balanced.

    Oh - and it's also beautifully finished.

    Beautiful and Sharp!

    I love love love this knife! It was worth the money and I totally enjoy slicing and dicing veggies. I am vegan...so that’s all I do, constantly, and this makes the task so much easier. The handle and look of the knife are also beautiful and eye-catching, which appeals to the artist in me!
