The first things that catches they eye about the beautiful Shun Premier series is its magnificent tsuchime finish. This hammered finish, combined with Premier's mirror blade polish and intricately layered Damascus, gives Shun Premier a look that is at once rustic and sophisticated. But the real beauty of the Premier is how it preforms. Premier is deisgned to provide expcetionally agile handling. The lightweight, razor-sharp blads are quick and precise. The palm swell on the hanlde netles into the hand to provde confident control - for both smaller and larger hands. The embossed andcap and brass ring provide both balance and beauty.
The measure of a cutlery company is largely in their ability to create a quality chef’s knife, and Shun has done just that with this Premier model. This 8’’ chef’s knife has been formed with layered Damascus steel, and it has a hammered finish to give it both improved looks and improved functionality. The hammered texture to the blade will prevent food from sticking as tightly as it would to a flat blade, and it also helps the blade move through food more easily. Along with that stunning blade is a beautiful pakkawood handle that will feel comfortable in your hand as you work.
