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

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.
