KSTDM0706: Shun Premier | 8" 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.

Cons: Construction, Durability
I bought 6 and 8" Premier chef's knives. 8" was on sale and was cheaper than 6". In fact 8" does all the job for 6-8" chef's knives. It's lightweight, razor-sharp, cuts everything almost like a butter. I used Chef's Choice Pronto Manual Diamond Hone Asian Knife Sharpener Model 463 to sharpen the knife and it worked excellent for me. The blade came out maybe sharper than original. No need to use clever sharpening tools. However, you don't want to use this knife for cutting bones or anything hard. Use German steel (Zwilling, Wusthoff, etc.). They are more sturdy and you can use them even on porcelain. Shun's edge will crinkle or bend. It's a fantastic knife if you use it wisely.
