Shun Cutlery

Your chef's knife will probably be the most-used knife in your kitchen. If you're like most cooks, you'll want to find the one that feels like an extension of your arm. The beautiful Shun Premier 8-in. Chef's Knife could be the one for you. This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier's thinner blades makes this chef's knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. The eight-inch length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

The Shun Premier Chef's Knife 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.
  • Beautiful and versatile, this is the one you'll reach for every day
  • 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: 8 in. (20.3 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan

Pros: Sharpenability, Sharpness, Design, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Construction, Durability
The knife is way to fragile
I used this knife to cut vegetables and met only but by just accidentaly bending the cutting edge a bit with barely any force at all a part of it broke of. Since then the tip and other parts of the knife have broken of by just handling it like a normal knife.So my conclusion is that the knife is sharp as hell and easy to use but it is superthin and fragile so if you're not an experienced knifewielder I would not recommend it.
