Shun Premier Range – 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.
Shun kitchen knives are made by KAI Corporation, which has been handcrafting blades in the spirit of the legendary sword smiths of Seki City, Japan for over 100 years. Every Shun knife is handmade by a team of highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps. This tradition of Japanese sword-making excellence in Seki City is combined with technology and advanced materials in each Shun knife.
