The epitome of cutlery, the Shun Premier 8 inch Chef's Knife is everything a knife should be. With a Damascus steel blade that has... been sharpened to a single-bevel edge, the chef's knife can cut through just about anything. Slicing, dicing, chopping, and mincing, the blade has a granton edge so even moist foods won't stick to the blade. A hand-hammered design is featured on the side of the blade which brings an ancient look and feel to the knife. The handle features a natural wood-grain design of dark Pakkawood in a D-shape so it is comfortable to hold because it contours better to hands. The Shun Premier 8 inch Chef's Knife will make a statement in any kitchen, so it's best to put it on display. The Shun Premier Collection harkens back to traditional craftsmanship of Japanese blades, including swords and knives. All blades are constructed of layers of Damascus steel for a sturdy blade that takes a sharp edge easily and retains it. The knives are sharpened to a single-bevel and fashioned extremely thin for precise cuts. A granton edge creates a semblance of a non-stick surface by allowing air between the blade and food so chefs can cut swifter and smoother. The side of the blade features a hand-hammered appearance (called Tsuchime in Japanese) for a look that resembles ancient blades constructed by hand. The signature Shun emblem is emblazoned on the blade and the base end-cap. Stainless bolsters hold each blade in perfect balance to the contoured handle. Made of dark Pakkawood the handle is given a D-shape for a more natural feel in the hand. The exposed wood-grain adds to the old world charm of the Premier knives. Shun has paid attention to every detail of every blade in the Premier Collection assuring each deserves to be called Premier. Blade measures 8 inches. read more
