The Premier Collection
Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, Shun Premier possesses the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of a high-carbon VG10 steel, clad with 16 layers on either side of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. The striking hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing food from the blade. The 16 degree ultra-thin blade edges retain a lasting and razor-sharp edge for precision on the cutting board. The walnut PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun logo embossed on the bottom adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in the hand or at rest in the block.
