Shun Premier

Shun's new line of kitchen knives are the ultimate in comfort, maneuverability, strength, precision and sharpness. Reminiscent of the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, the Shun Premier collection combines the grace and beauty of ancient hand-forged knives with modern manufacturing techniques to create a new line of kitchen cutlery unlike any other. Each blade has a core of VGMax steel, clad in 16 layers per side of stainless Damascus, which is then beveled for lateral stability and unmatched precision. The unique hammered finish acts as hollow-ground cavities which help reduce drag and quickly releases foods while slicing and dicing. The contoured walnut Pakkawood Handles fit comfortably in the hand. All Shun knives include free lifetime sharpening from their US Headquarters in Tualatin, Oregon!
