Slicing Knife

Details
Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, Shun Premier possesses the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with 16 layers on either side of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a "hamon" is formed--similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique. The striking, hand-hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and keeps food from sticking to the knife. The graceful curves of the elegant walnut Pakkawood handle allow for a variety of comfortable grips and the Shun logo embossed on the endcap adds balance and beauty to the knife. Once you experience the incredibly thin, sharp edge, you'll know why this knife is appropriately called "Premier." Features: VG-10 stainless steel clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a 33 layer rust free Damascus look. Striking hand-hammered "Tsuchime" finish reduces drag when cutting and keeps food from sticking to the knife. Double-beveled. Elegant Walnut PakkaWood handles embossed with Shun logo on endcap.
