Shun Premier 9.5" Slicing Knife

Overview

Slicing knives are staple tools around the holiday season, and really for anyone who does serious cooking with roasts, turkey, chicken, and other meat. Also known as a Carving knife, the Shun Premier 9.5" Slicing Knife has a long and slender blade with a 16° razor-sharp cutting angle. The blade effortlessly glides through meat for a perfect and precise cut, trapping in the juices and flavor, and giving you the best possible slice. Like all the knives in the Shun Premier Series, the Slicing knife possesses the stunning hand-hammered tsuchime finish which acts like hollow-grounds. These indentations reduce drag and prevent the food from sticking, making this knife ideal for slicing vegetables as well. We recommend pairing this blade with a Shun Carving fork. Handcrafted in Japan. Lifetime Warranty. Shun item number TDM0704.

Shun Technology Highlights

  • VG-10 stainless steel: Adds cobalt for strength and hardness, vanadium for superior edge retention. The higher density allows the steel to be tempered to a higher Rockwell (60-62). Requires minimal care to avoid corrosion. Razor-sharp blade and phenomenal edge retention.
  • 16° Angle: Blade is sharpened to 16°. Ensures food is cut properly and precisely; no torn or bruised food so ingredients retain the same flavor and freshness.
  • PakkaWood® Handles: Resin-impregnated natural hardwood; waterproof, durable, comfortable; won’t harbor bacteria.
  • Awards: Blade Magazine’s Blade Show Kitchen Knife of the Year winner (2003 - Classic 8” Santoku, 2005 – Ken Onion 8” Chef’s, 2006 – Elite 10” Chef’s, 2007 – Kaji, 2008 – Shun Classic Line, 2010 Premier Line, 2011 – Fuji Line).

Shun Premier Knives

Shun Premier Series Features

In case you didn’t know that Shun uses handcrafted techniques in homage of their ancestors, the remarkable Premier Series screams it. Every one of these double-beveled knives has a powerful VG-10 core and is then clad with 16 layers on each side of softer steel (SUS410/SUS431) which is folded, welded, grinded, and then polished. This form of Kasumi style knife making, similar to pattern Damascus, is also featured in the Classic and Ken Onion Series. What really brings out the handcrafted nature of this line is the hand-hammered tsuchime finish which actually serves a purpose, other than looking awesome. They act as little hollow-ground cavities, creating tiny air pockets that prevent food from sticking and allows for proper and precise cuts. You’ll also notice a wavy line near the edge called a harmon where the core and clad meet, similar to post-tempered samurai swords. Yeah, that’s right. Samurai Swords.
About Shun

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to “at the peak of perfection,” and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of “Shoon”) have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
