Premier // Santoku 7”
The Shun Premier 7" Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favorites. A knife of many talents, a santoku easily handles all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, the Shun Premier Santoku is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the Premier Santoku's versatility. The santoku is as easy to use as a chef's knife, and is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut).
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.
