Shun Premier line, which 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. 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 Hamon 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. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
9.5-in. Slicing Knife
The Shun Premier Slicing Knife can make food look delicious by enabling you to cut thin, even slices. But it can actually make food taste better, too. With the Shun Premier Slicing Knife’s longer length, narrower blade, and Shun-sharp edge you can make long, even slices without tearing or sawing. This kind of clean-cut keeps more of the meat juices—and thus more of the flavor—inside the meat, rather than pooling on the cutting board. The Shun Premier Slicing Knife’s 9 ½-inch blade means you can cut slices with a single, long stroke. The narrow profile and razor-sharp Shun edge let the blade glide through the meat with less friction so each slice is perfect. Ideal for slicing a wide variety of meats, the Shun Premier Slicing Knife can also be used to cut larger vegetables.
6-in. Carving Fork
The two-pronged Shun Premier Carving Fork easily holds food in place while slicing or carving and even assists in serving. In a way, the carving fork acts as an extension of the carver’s arm, holding the meat in place as a slicing or carving knife glides through the food. The tines on the Shun Premier Carving Fork are long enough to penetrate roasts with ease in order to anchor them to the cutting board as you slice. The length also ensures your hand stays safely away from the blade. The Shun Premier Carving Fork is the perfect match for the Shun Premier Slicing Knife. The Shun Premier Carving Fork is made of stainless steel and shares its beautiful walnut PakkaWood handle with the rest of the Shun Premier line.
