KSTDM0723: Shun Premier | 6" Chef's
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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Construction, Sharpenability, Sharpness, Material Quality
Cons: None
as expected...
It's a GP slicer. Pretty enough to frame, but it has to earn its keep. It's a bit too shiny, but i guess it will scratch up with time.

Shun chef's knife
The shun knife i bought is amazing it is so sharp that even showing the knife to the food will cut it (joke) I use this at work and everyone loves the quality and sharpness of it (including me), the blade is well balanced with the handle. The only issue i have with the knife is keeping it safe , because i work in a busy kitchen i need a knife that i can throw around and be less carefull , but i can't with the shun , the shun is so delicate If i drop it the blade will shatter, but other than that this product is great thanks!
