Crafted by expert artisans in Seki City, Japan, Shun Premier Cutlery features a high-carbon VG-10 steel core, which is clad with as many as 16 layers of Damascus stainless steel. With gently-contoured Pakkawood handles, the Shun Premier Knives feature ultra-thin blade edges which retain their super sharp edge, resulting in consistently razor-sharp slicing.
In Addition to their clad VG-10 blades, The Shun Premier Knives also feature our uniquely stable "D" shape handle design.
The "D" shape rests precisely in the curve of the fingers as they curl around the handle. The asymmetrical bolster is ground out more on the right side to provide proper finger placement and an easy, secure grip. The knives balance perfectly, with the pivot point just ahead of where the handle sweeps out of the blade. The handles of the Shun Premier Knives add beauty, function, and balance.
