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.

The right knife really can make food taste better. The Shun Premier Slicing knife's long, narrow blade enables you to make a cleaner cut, which helps keep more of the juices and more of the flavor trapped in the meat. The longer blade lets you make precise slices with a single stroke, while the narrower profile helps the blade glide through the meat with less friction. The Shun Premier Slicing knife is ideal when used to slice meats (or larger vegetables) against a cutting board.
