Shun Premier Santoku 7"
The Shun Premier 7-in. Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife. "Santoku" means "three virtues." Depending on who you ask, this relates either to the three types of food with which it works exceptionally well—vegetables, poultry, and fish—or to the three types of cuts at which it excels: slicing, dicing, and chopping.
The Shun Premier Santoku 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.
