    Distinguished by hand-hammered blades and walnut-coloured PakkaWood handles, the Shun Premier Collection showcases the artistry and precision of artisan-forged knives. Modelled after European knives, this Western chef's knife has a 22-degree cutting edge that provides additional strength for cutting heavier foods like winter squash and cabbage.

    • Blade features core of VG-MAX "super steel" clad on each side with 34 microthin layers of stainless steel.
    • Striking hand-hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and helps release food from blade.Walnut-finish PakkaWood handle has two-position design, providing a trigger grip for pull cuts and the perfect balance point for pinch grips.
    • Stainless-steel endcaps embossed with Shun logo add stability, strength and wide weight distribution from end to end.
    • Handcrafted in Japan.
    • 8" blade, 4" handle.
    • 8.5 oz.
    • Handcrafted in Japan.


    • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
    • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
    • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


    • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
    • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
    • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
    • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 22-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
    • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
