Description

SPECIAL VALUE Handcrafted by expert artisans in Seki City, Japan. Shun Premier santokus feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. All knives are hammered by hand with a technique known as tsuchime to a beautiful finish that reduces drag when cutting, preventing food from sticking to the blade. Ultra-thin blade edges retain a lasting and razor-sharp edge for precision on the cutting board.

Fantastic Tool
I received this knife as a gift and absolutely love it! It keeps it edge and is razor sharp. I can't speak highly enough of this knife. I use it for everything. I really don't need any other knife, but now that I've discovered this knife, I think I want just a few other sizes.

wonderful product
I bought this for my husband for fathers day and he is thrilled to have it.
He has 2 other Shun knives and they are equally amazing tools.
This was also a great price and a bonus of no shipping charge

I have a few Shun knives and I love them. This one will serve as an all purpose knife for me. The one I use now is a 5.5 inch, this will be a little larger and hopefully make chopping times a little shorter and easier.

Does the shun premier santoku have a lifetime warantee?
A shopper on May 16, 2011
Does this knife come with a stand? Shun premier santoku 7"
A shopper on Dec 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, these knives do not come with a stand.
Will this knife work for left-handed chefs?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’m right handed but the blade edge has a uniform cutting angle on both sides. The handle of the knife is agnostic to which hand it’s used in. So I think Shun will work from either hand equally well.
I need one fir everyday use. Not sure what size to get. The blade is the inches specified?
Tammy on May 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The knife comes in either a 5.5-inch or 7-inch blade. We bought the 7-inch blade. We also have Henkel's 8-inch and 6-inch Chef's knives. I use all the knives interchangeably and depending on my mood. Personally, I think the 7-inch is more versatile than the 5.5-inch blade.
