Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, Shun Premier offers the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG-MAX steel, clad with 34 layers on either side of stainless steel Damascus, thus beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed - similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique.
The walnut Pakkawood handles nestle comfortably in the hand.
The Shun logo embossed on the bottom end cap adds balance and beauty to the knife.
