Shun Premier Series 8 Inch Chef’s Knife is a thinner and more lightweight than traditional knives making it easier to use and less fatiguing. This series of Premier uses the most advanced materials in the industry yet each knife goes through over 100 traditional process steps to be completed.
Handcrafted with a VG-MAX core for an incredible edge then layered in Damascus stainless steel for added strength and durability. Hand hammered finish on the blade leaves a series of hollow ground depressions that form small air pockets, making less drag on the knife when cutting.
Walnut stain finish Pakkawood handles on the Shun Premier Series 8 Inch Chef’s Knife has 2 positions, one is a finger grip when making pulling cuts and the other is a balance point for a pinch grip. The handle is completed with an embossed heel cap for balance as well.
Lightweight, very thin and sharp with a small arc in the belly for a rocking chop motion for mincing as well easy slicing of boneless meats, chopping vegetables and frutis make this a sure go to knife every time.
