KSTDM0706: TDM0706 Premier Chef's Knife
Shun Cutlery

Your chef's knife will probably be the most-used knife in your kitchen. If you're like most cooks, you'll want to find the one that feels like an extension of your arm. The beautiful Shun Premier 8-in. Chef's Knife could be the one for you. This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier's thinner blades makes this chef's knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. The eight-inch length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in 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.

The Shun Premier Chef's Knife is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX "super steel" to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
  • Beautiful and versatile, this is the one you'll reach for every day
  • Hammered tsuchime finish helps release food easily when cutting
  • Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive)
  • Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers each side stainless Damascus cladding
  • Handle: Contoured walnut PakkaWood
  • Blade length: 8 in. (20.3 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan

Cons: Construction, Durability
I bought 6 and 8" Premier chef's knives. 8" was on sale and was cheaper than 6". In fact 8" does all the job for 6-8" chef's knives. It's lightweight, razor-sharp, cuts everything almost like a butter. I used Chef's Choice Pronto Manual Diamond Hone Asian Knife Sharpener Model 463 to sharpen the knife and it worked excellent for me. The blade came out maybe sharper than original. No need to use clever sharpening tools. However, you don't want to use this knife for cutting bones or anything hard. Use German steel (Zwilling, Wusthoff, etc.). They are more sturdy and you can use them even on porcelain. Shun's edge will crinkle or bend. It's a fantastic knife if you use it wisely.
