Premier Asian Cook's Knife, 7" by Shun
When a cook is working with razor sharp knives, learning the "pinch grip" and maintaining knuckle clearance are just common sense. The razor sharp Shun Premier 7" Asian Cook's Knife, or the gyuto, is the Japanese equivalent of the chef’s knife. It's an all-purpose knife ideal for meat and fish, yet it also performs beautifully on vegetables. The Shun Premier Asian Cook’s Knife is sure to become your go-to knife for a wide range of food preparation tasks.
Samurai warriors used hand-forged swords with at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. This is the same process Shun uses with advanced technology and a 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.
