Handcrafted Japanese blades with a stunning hammered finish.

Description

Handcrafted by expert artisans in Japan, the Shun Premier kiritsuke features a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel.

All Premier knives are hammered by hand with a technique known as tsuchime to a beautiful finish that reduces drag when cutting and helps keep food from sticking to the blade. Ultra-thin blade edges retain a lasting and razor-sharp edge for precision at the cutting board.

Great Knife
Great Knife. Very sharp right out of the box. Looks good and is easy to work with. If you're not use to Asian knives, be careful as they are very sharp.
