Description

This Shun Premier Santoku Knife is smaller than the full-sized santoku, and makes it perfect for most medium-sized kitchen tasks. Slicing baby carrots, chopping shallots, cutting butter or chocolate are all perfect jobs. If you have smaller hands or simply prefer a lighter knife, this one is sure to become one of your favorite kitchen go-to knives.

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.
