Product description

Size :8-Inch

Made in Japan.Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, Shun Premier offers the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with 32 layers of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the two steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) acts similar to a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing food from the blade. The walnut PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun logo embossed on the bottom end cap adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in use in the hand or at rest in the block.The Shun Premier 8-inch Chef's knife is one of the two most common lengths for a Chef's knife. It's an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is 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. Shun Premier's thinner blades make it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.Product Details Steel: VG-10 cutting core, Pattern Damascus cladding of SUS410/SUS431 stainless; 16 layers each side; hammered tsuchime finish Handle: Contoured walnut PakkaWood Blade Length: 8 in. (20.3 cm)

Shun Premier

The first thing that catches the eye about the beautiful Shun Premier series is its magnificent tsuchime (tsoo-CHEE-may) finish. This hammered finish combined with Premier's mirror blade polish and intricately layered Damascus, gives Shun Premier a look that is at once rustic and sophisticated.

But the real beauty of Premier is how it performs. Premier is designed to provide exceptionally agile handling. The lightweight, razor-sharp blades are quick and precise. The palm swell on the handle nestles into the hand to provide confident control - for both smaller and larger hands. The embossed endcap and brass ring provide both balance and beauty.
