Santoku means “three virtues” in Japanese, and this knife gets its name for the three strengths it demonstrates in the kitchen...: cutting vegetables, thin-boned meats, and fish. Many cooks reach for their santoku at least as often as their chef’s knife. This santoku’s slightly curved blade enables you to employ a rocking motion while cutting. A thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European–style knives. Plus, oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking. Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance. Shun Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. ?Manufacturer: KAI USA Ltd.Material: High-carbon stainless steel, ebony pakkawoodCare: Hand wash onlyDimensions: 7" bladeWarranty: Limited lifetime warrantyHandcrafted in Seki City, JapanFree sharpening on all Shun cutlery for as long as you own it.

<p>A must-have for anyone who loves to cook, this all-purpose chef's knife by Shun Premier comes in handy for a variety of food-pr...epping tasks. Use it to chop, slice, dice, and more--everything from carrots and potatoes for a savory stew, green peppers and onions for a homemade pizza to fruit for a summer salad. The knife features a large 8-inch blade with a slight curve that facilitates smooth rocking back and forth when cutting, and its large surface area allows for scooping and transporting ingredients from the cutting board. Durably constructed from layered Damascus steel, the knife's blade comes with a hand-hammered finish that not only adds intriguing visual appeal, but that also creates a hollow-ground surface, which reduces knife-drag when cutting and prevents food from sticking to the blade. The knife also comes equipped with a premium Pakkawood handle in a walnut finish, which offers a comfortable, secure grip. As a sleek and stylish finishing touch, Shun embossed its logo on the endcap of the knife's handle. The high-quality knife can safely go in the dishwasher, but for best results, washing it by hand and letting it air dry is recommended. The 8-inch chef's knife measures 13-1/5 by 4/5 by 1-4/5 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty.</p> <div class="aplus"> <h3 class="productDescriptionSource">From the Manufacturer</h3> <div class="three-fourth-col"> <div class="leftImage" style="width:400px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B003B66YKA-hammered.jpg" width="400" height="181" alt="Shun Premier" /> <div class="imageCaption">Gorgeous hammered-finish blade with PakkaWood handle.</div> </div> <h4>Premier Series</h4> <h5>Why Buy Shun Premier</h5> <p>Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, the Shun Premier possesses the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with stainless Damascus, then ground for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a Hamon is formed--similar to when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag when cutting as well as quickly releasing food from the blade.

The somewhat "softer" exterior cladding protects the inner cutting core. In Japanese, kasumi means "mist" and is so called because the exterior steel can have a lovely misty appearance when compared to the harder cutting core.</p> <p>Kasumi construction provides an ultimate mix of properties: an extremely sharp edge and ease of sharpening. This clad construction is similar to how samurai swords are traditionally made.</p> <h5>Hammered Tsuchime Finish</h5> <p>In Japanese, Tsuchime (Tsoo-CHEE-may) simply means "hammered". It does two things: gives the knife a look that is reminiscent of the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan; and creates tiny pockets of air that act as hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag and quickly release food from the blade. Shun's gorgeous new Premier line features a hand-hammered tsuchime blade finish.</p> <h5>Damascus (Suminigashi)</h5> <p>Many Shun cutlery lines are characterized by the beautiful Damascus patterning on the blades. In Japan, this is also known as suminigashi, or ink pattern, because of its resemblance to the undulating patterns made by ink in water. To create this style of blade, a cutting core of VG10 is clad on each side with 16 layers of Damascus steel, made up of SUS410 and SUS431 stainless steel. Then the blades are bead-blasted to reveal the elegant, waved pattern.</p> <p>In addition to its beauty, the Damascus has two purposes. First, it protects and supports the extremely hard cutting core. Second, it helps the blade glide through food even more smoothly. You will find Damascus cladding on knives in our Classic, Ken Onion, and Premier series.</p> <h5>PakkaWood</h5> <p>PakkaWood is a premium handle material made of genuine hardwood impregnated with resin. The resin makes it moisture resistant, strong, and durable. Sanding and buffing brings PakkaWood to a beautiful gloss finish. As with natural wood, no two pieces of PakkaWood are exactly alike.</p> </div> <div class="fourth-col last"> <h4>Professional Manufacturing</h4> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-1_t.jpg" width="200" height="129" alt="Manufacturing 1" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-2_t.jpg" width="200" height="300" alt="Manufacturing 2" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-3_t.jpg" width="200" height="134" alt="Manufacturing 3" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-4_t.jpg" width="200" height="158" alt="Manufacturing 4" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> </div> <div class="break"></div> <table class="data"> <tr> <th style="width:100%" colspan="2">Specifications</th> </tr> <tr> <td style="width:20%">Blade Material:</td> <td>VG-10 hardened Japanese steel cutting core, clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers of metal.</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Bevel:</td> <td>Double-beveled</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Cutting angle:</td> <td>16 degrees per side (comprehensive angle 32 degrees) </td> </tr> <tr> <td>Handle Material:</td> <td>PakkaWood (resin-impregnated hardwood); oblong ambidextrous handles </td> </tr> <tr> <td>Sharpening recommendations:</td> <td>Weekly honing to maintain the blade, sharpening as needed with professional sharpener or Asian-style electric sharpener</td> </tr> </table> </div> read more
