Shun Cutlery


Make your best steaks taste even better with the Shun Premier Steak Knife. With Shun's incredibly sharp, clean edge, there's no tearing, no sawing—and no need for serrations. Because the edge is so sharp, it cuts fewer of the capillaries in the meat and keeps more of the meat juices, which translates to more of the flavor, inside the steak. Once you use a dedicated steak knife, you'll understand that the right knife really can make an enormous difference in the enjoyment of your meal. Remember that cutting against the hard surface of ceramic or glass dinner plates is tough on your edge, so these knives will require a little extra care.

The Shun Premier Steak Knife 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.

Excellent and delicate
It's a delight to use the knife. It's so sharp it virtually glides thru meat, not just cuts them.It's beautiful, I sometimes just look at it when I smoke in the kitchen.However, it's very delicate and you don't want to use it like German cutlery - almost on any surface - only on wood and plastic.
