TIME TO GO PRO
The Shun Premier 8-piece Professional Set includes everything you need to take your kitchen cutlery game to pro level. You get the three most-needed kitchen knives—the Shun Premier 8-inch Chef's Knife, the 4-inch Paring Knife, and the 6.5-inch Utility Knife. You also get the nimble 5.5-inch Premier Santoku, handy 9-inch Premier Bread Knife, and elegant 9.5-inch Premier Slicing Knife. There's also a Premier Combination Honing Steel to help you maintain your edge. Everything fits in our 11-Slot Bamboo Block—with room to grow your collection. There are four additional slots, including one to accommodate a handy pair of kitchen shears.
The Shun Premier 8-piece Professional Set is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
