Handcrafted by expert artisans in Seki City, Japan, Shun Premier knives feature a high-carbon VG-10 steel core clad with 16 layers of Damascus stainless steel. Their ultra-thin blades are cut to a 16į angle, and their edges retain a lasting razor-sharpness for precision and control.
The striking, hand-hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and keeps food from sticking to the blades. The graceful curves of the elegant walnut PakkaWood handles allow for a variety of comfortable grips. Hand wash. Set of 4. Made in Japan.
