The Shun Premier 9.5-inch Slicing Knife features a long length, narrower blade, with a sharp edge, allowing to make long, even slices without tearing or sawing. This kind of clean cut keeps more of the meat juices and flavors inside the meat, rather than collecting on the cutting board. Slicing knives can make food look delicious by enabling you to cut thin, even slices, and can actually make food taste better. The narrow profile and razor-sharp Shun edge allows the blade to glide through meat with less friction so each slice is perfect.
Shun pronounced "shoon" in Japanese, means "at the peak of perfection". Each knife is handmade by skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete one knife. Shun Premier knives feature a VG-10 super steel core encased with a Damascus clad 32-layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel, 16-layers on each side. The Damascus steel supports and protects the core, which provides toughness, and is stain resistant. The hammered tsuchime design acts as a hollow-ground and releases the food easily from the blade when slicing. Each Shun knife provides a Japanese blade angle of 16°. You will enjoy the ease of cutting the thinnest slices without bruising or tearing the most delicate foods while prepping; this ensures the ingredients to stay intact, retain flavor, and stay fresh. The blade is complimented by a D-shaped traditional Japanese handle, made out of walnut stained PakkaWood. Shun offers a full assortment, so you will always find the right knife for the task. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty. Handwashing is recommended.
