Created in classic methods and formed out of cutting edge materials, individual blade work is produced for all that insist on superior tools for the kitchen. Hand-crafted and unique, each Shun knife goes through more than 100 processing steps before it reaches completion. Anyone that owns a piece of Shun Cutlery benefits from Japanese traditional craftsmanship that can elevate food preparation to a combination of bliss and satisfaction.
Several historic Japanese sword and knife making techniques are rolled together as a unified whole, and then used on the finest materials available today. Art, design, tradition, and technology is the expression of Shun Knives Premier Series Cutlery.The core and blade edge are composed of proprietary VG-MAX "super steel." This core possesses great hardness which will accept and hold a long-lasting, sharp edge. The steel core is then clad with 34 layers of Damascus steel for added support, and extra stain-resistance with shatter-proofing qualities. This particular type of Damascus steel possesses beautiful waves that will seem to move while you work. Damascus steel layers notably create smoother slicing actions. A hammered tsuchime finish is also placed on the softer spine to reduce drag, like hollow-ground cavities, for non-stick qualities. This treatment also gives the Shun Knives Premier Series Cutlery an added hand-forged, ancient appearance. The knife blade is submitted to a final tempering process that produces a lovely, undulating hamon line. Each hamon line is different and unique. It is the viable proof that an artisan worked with effort and great skill to produce the finest blade possible. The clay-baking method of final tempering brings out the strength, hardness, flexibility, resilience, and artistic qualities of each knife blade. Those that appreciate fine blades will love Shun Knives Premier Series Cutlery for all that they are, and can do in the kitchen.
