In the tradition of Japan's ancient sword smiths, each elegant damascus-clad. Knife is handcrafted in Seki City, Japan with a 100-step process. The blade is forged with 34 micro-layers metal on each side of a VG-MAX cutting core.
There are alternating layers of 431 and 410 stainless steel, plus one additional layer of nickel on each side of the cutting core. Forged into one single, strong piece of metal, these layers support the core, add stain and corrosion resistance, and help the food slide from the blade.The blade of each Shun Premier knife has a hand-hammered. Finish, which adds beauty to the blade and also acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities that make the blade glide through food and help the cut food release from the blade. The durable, edge-retaining, easy to sharpen core of VG-MAX stainless steel is exposed at the critical point - the blade's cutting edge. The blade of each Shun Premier knife is sharpened to a cutting angle of 16-degrees on each side. Each beautiful Shun Premier handle is made of walnut PakkaWood, a resin-impregnated natural hardwood that is durable and moisture resistant and does not harbor bacteria.
This ambidextrous, curved handle offers a secure grip. An embossed end cap adds balance and beauty to the knife.New in the retail box.
