From the makers of Japan’s finest cutlery comes the Shun Premier collection with a unique new tsuchime finish. The knives’ hand-hammered texture creates ripples with an effect similar to hollow-ground, reducing drag for a gliding cut and quick release while slicing, dicing and paring. The durable VG-MAX steel cores are clad with 34 layers of high-carbon stainless steel on each side for maximum strength and stability. Infused with resin, uniquely contoured blonde birch handles nestle comfortably in the hand. The stainless handle caps embossed with the Shun logo add balance and beauty. A fantastic housewarming, graduation or wedding gift, this set includes an 8-inch chef’s knife, 6-inch utility knife, 3.5-inch paring knife, honing steel and six-slot bamboo block.
Each exquisite Shun knife is carefully crafted in a 100-step process inspired by ancient sword smiths. The amazing razor-sharp blades are created in Seki City, Japan’s 700-year-old center for samurai swords.
