Start with one of the best professional-grade Japanese knives, then make it even more special. That's the Shun Premier Chef's Knife. It's made with all of Shun's legendary quality and cutting performance, but with even more hand-made attention to detail. The Damascus-type blade is fully-forged with a VG-Max cutting core and clad with 16 layers of stainless per side. The blade also receives a stunning, hand-hammered Tsuchime finish that keeps food from sticking and reduces drag when slicing. The razor-sharp, 16° per-side edge is honed and finished by Shun's master bladesmiths. The Premier Chef's Knife has a more Western profile, with a slightly deeper heel and more curvature to the tip, for proven versatility to take on most any job. The Shun Premier series also features a specially contoured handle, carved from premium walnut hardwood. The blade bolster and special Premier series end bolster provide flawless balance for sustained use with minimum hand fatigue. And like all Shun Classic blades, it includes free lifetime sharpening and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Made in Seki, Japan.
