The Shun Premier Santoku 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.
  • Smaller than the standard Santoku knife size, this one is an in-between size and weight that make it perfect for most medium-sized kitchen tasks. Slicing baby carrots, chopping shallots, cutting butter or chocolate…all are perfect jobs for this small version.
  • Suitable for smaller hands or for those who simply prefer a lighter knife.
  • The slight belly curve enables the cook to rock the blade slightly and makes this santoku as easy to use as a chef's knife. It is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut) and many cooks swear by their santoku for top performance
  • 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.
  • Razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods
  • 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: 5.5-in. (14 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan
