The Shun Premier Slicing Knife can make food look delicious by enabling you to cut thin, even slices. The longer length, narrow blade, and Shun-sharp edge makes long, even slices without tearing or sawing. This kind of clean cut keeps more of the meat juices and thus more of the flavor inside the meat, rather than pooling on the cutting board. The blade means you can cut slices with a single, long stroke. The narrow profile and razor-sharp Shun edge lets the blade glide through meat with less friction, so each slice is perfect. Ideal for slicing a wide variety of meats, the Shun Premier Slicing Knife can also be used to cut larger vegetables.

The Shun Premier line calls to mind as 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 samurai swords 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. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.
