Premier // 3 Piece Knife Set
The Shun Premier 3-Piece Essentials Set includes three of the most essential pieces of kitchen cutlery. The set is built around the Shun Premier 8" Chef's Knife, the one knife you're sure to use every time you cook. Of course, when the chef's knife isn't in your hand, you'll probably be using a paring knife for all those trimming and peeling tasks, which is why this set also includes the Premier 4". Paring Knife. Finally, you also get the Shun Premier 6.5". Utility Knife—perfect for all those in-between tasks. This attractive set comes in a tasteful box suitable for storage or gift-giving.
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.
