Premier // Chef's 8"
The Shun Premier 8" Chef's Knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. The eight-inch length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
The Shun Premier line calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge, while the layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the one formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered Tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag, and the handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
