Made in Japan.
Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, Shun Premier offers the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with 32 layers of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the two steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) acts similar to 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 end cap adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in use in the hand or at rest in the block.
Your perfect steak deserves the perfect steak knife. The Shun Premier steak knife is the right knife for the job. With Shun's incredibly sharp, clean edge, there is no need for serrations. The knife simply glides through your steak. The clean cut helps ensure your steak loses less juice and keeps the juicy flavor where it belongs - in the steak and in your mouth. And the gorgeous looks of the Premier Steak knife is practically guaranteed to enhance your dining experience.
