Shun pronounced "shoon" in Japanese, means- "at the peak of perfection". Each knife is handmade by skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete one knife. Shun Premier knives feature a VG-Max super steel core encased with a Damascus clad 34-layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel, 17-layers on each side. The Damascus steel supports and protects the core, which provides toughness, and is stain resistant.The hammered tsuchime design acts as a hollow-ground and releases the food easily from the blade when slicing. Each Shun knife provides a Japanese blade angle of 16°. You will enjoy the ease of cutting the thinnest slices without bruising or tearing the most delicate foods while prepping; this ensures the ingredients to stay intact, retain flavor, and stay fresh.
The blade is complimented by a D-shaped traditional Japanese handle, made out of wstylish grey PakkaWood. The Shun Premier 5-piece Starter Set is part of the beautiful 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.
