Details
Take your santoku to the next level when you slice, dice and chop with the Shun Premier Sumo Santoku knife. Wider than a regular santoku knife, the Premier Sumo Santoku is extra efficient for slicing and chopping meats, vegetables, poultry and even thicker foods like potatoes. Extra-wide blade is great for scooping and transferring food to pan. Down-turned blade tip and curved belly allows gentle rocking and works well for push cutting. Blade made of VG-MAX steel, clad with 34 layers of stainless Damascus and beveled for lateral stability and precision. Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. A wavy line where the two steels meet, called the hamon, resembles the line formed when natural samurai swords are tempered with traditional clay-baking technique. Contoured walnut PakkaWood handle looks elegant and feels comfortable in hand. The embossed Shun end cap adds balance and beauty. Hand wash with gentle dish soap that contains no bleach or citrus extracts, towel dry. Made in Japan. Measurements: ; Handle Length: 5 in ; Weight: 8 oz ; Blade Length: 7 1 2 in
