KSTDM0743: TDM0743 Premier Sumo Santoku Knife
Shun Cutlery

If you like your santoku, you will love the Shun Premier Sumo Santoku. It's a santoku plus. Wider than our regular-sized santoku, the Shun Premier Sumo Santoku is extremely efficient for slicing and chopping a full range of vegetables, proteins, and fruit. This wider blade makes it easier to cut through larger or thicker foods, such as potatoes or jicama. The extra-wide blade also makes it easy to scoop up prepared foods for quick transfer to the cooking pot or pan. Once you try it, you just may find that it becomes one of your favorite go-to knives.

The Shun Premier Sumo Santoku is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls 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 handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
  • Larger than a standard santoku, the Premier Sumo Santoku is even more versatile
  • Hammered tsuchime finish helps release food easily when cutting
  • Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive)
  • Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers each side stainless Damascus cladding
  • Handle: Contoured walnut PakkaWood
  • Blade length: 7 in. (17.8 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan

Pros: Sharpness, Design
Cons: None
Great all the way
Great knife out of the box. Very nice to look at, even nicer to slice tomato with! The blade is rather thin, it's razor sharp but I will see how durable it is. The fact that is arrived in 4 business days all the way to CH is great! I will shop here for my next knifes!
