Shun Cutlery


A chef's knife is a personal choice. That's why Shun offers so many different lines and blade lengths. For instance, in the same way that some cooks prefer a longer chef's knife, others prefer a shorter length. For cooks who enjoy the lightweight nimbleness of a shorter blade, we offer the Shun Premier 6-in. Chef's Knife. Of course, it performs all the tasks for which you choose a chef's knife, from slicing, dicing, and chopping to making rocking cuts through herbs. Yet it also offers the quick, agile performance and high degree of control that a slightly smaller knife can provide.

The Shun Premier 6-in. Chef's 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.


  • A smaller chef's knife for quick, nimble performance
  • Hammered tsuchime finish helps release food easily when cutting
  • Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive)
  • Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers each side stainless Damascus cladding
  • Handle: Contoured walnut PakkaWood
  • Blade length: 6 in. (15.2 cm)
  • Handcrafted in Japan

as expected...
It's a GP slicer. Pretty enough to frame, but it has to earn its keep.It's a bit too shiny, but i guess it will scratch up with time.

Shun chef's knife
The shun knife i bought is amazing it is so sharp that even showing the knife to the food will cut it (joke)I use this at work and everyone loves the quality and sharpness of it (including me), the blade is well balanced with the handle.The only issue i have with the knife is keeping it safe , because i work in a busy kitchen i need a knife that i can throw around and be less carefull , but i can't with the shun , the shun is so delicate If i drop it the blade will shatter, but other than that this product is great thanks!
