Premier Knife Starter Set | 3 Piece
Slicing and dicing is taken to a whole new level with the handcrafted perfection of Shun's Premier Knife Collection. The Premier Knives call 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 walnut coloured PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably in the hand, whether right- or left-handed, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty. A century-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, make every Shun knife a functional work of art.
