KAI’s new Shun Premier Series combines KAI’s famous Damascus layered knives with a hand-hammered surface, which in Japan is known as Tsuchime, thus combining timeless aesthetic qualities with ultimate sharpness as well as reducing drag when cutting, preventing food from sticking to the blade. The ergonomically shaped handle of brown walnut fits comfortably in the hand and is suitable for both right-handed and left-handed use.

Handcrafted by expert master forgers of Seki City, Japan. Shun Premier chef’s knife features corrosion-resistant 32-layer damask steel. The inner layer consists of VG-10 steel and, with a hardness of 61±1 HRC, is exceptionally hard. The grinding process perfected by Kai provides the knife with the sharpness that is typical for Shun.
