KSTDM0702: Shun Premier | 7" Santoku
Shun Cutlery

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 VG10 steel, clad with 16 layers on either side of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed -- similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique. 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 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.

Cons: None
This is the best birthday gift I've ever got. It was so much better than I anticipated. I am a vegan chef and I use it for cutting everything from soft fruits to hard vegetables. The handle of the knife has a great weight and handles well. For the price this is an excellent knife. Also the service from this business was brilliant. Would recommend to anyone. 10/10.

An amazing piece of art!
Beautiful. Perfectly balanced. Razor sharp blade. (It seems to be even sharper than the ceramic knife I have.) How well the VG-10 core holds up still needs to be seen. The knife came with a relative narrow edge - I estimate 10-15 degree total (5-7.5 degree per side.) Not sure how well sharpness can be maintained in the long term by honing the knife. It's not your typical "work horse" knife, such as a German 0r US made blade of X50CroMoV15, but it is the perfect choice when you need an extra sharp edge for cutting soft items, i.e. ripe tomatoes or sashimi grade seafood.
