5  What's the row all about?, July 8, 2017
Posted By: Edward Roth

My first entrance into Japanese knives was a starter set of three Shun Premier Knives and a Miyabi Artisan 150mm Gyuto. For an average of 123USD I got three beautiful Japanese-made Western style Shun knives. I have read many reviews saying one can do much better than these at much better prices. After taking that to heart I have also purchased knives from the Kohetsu HAP 40 and Kurosaki AS lines...both very highly rated knives. While I have not lived with the others very long, I can say this...there is no shame in buying/owning Shun Premeir or Miyabi Artisan Knives. They were all close to straight razor sharp out the box and the eye candy quotient is off the charts. The fit to hand is quite stunning if not a bit handle heavy. Overall, these are some very fine knives that will do the job and look great doing so and...you'll be proud owning and passing down to the next gen of foodies!!!

Hello

Thank you for the Knife it is great!!

Just a query is there any chance of discounting the shipping because $4o NZD is quite expensive.

Thanks

This is the knife to which I compare all others. Its quite sharp out of the box. Sharpens easily. Decent edge retention. Beautiful. There's something about this knife's design that creates extremely low drag. I'm not sure if its the blade geometry, the hammering, or the polished cladding, but this knife is considerably easier to slice/dice onions with and things of that sort than any other knife I have used.

The cons for me are that I should have gotten the 10""; I find the 8 too short. Also the knife has too much belly for my liking and there isn't enough knuckle clearance behind the heel.

Great knife. Have the suntuku as well. Good weight and handle feels ergonomic. Like the depth of the belly as it gives you the rocker motion of a euro but the steel and sharpness of Japanese. Great price at $119. Great shipping too. Shipped same day and received in two days.

Great knife. Cuts clean, and beautiful, to boot. Can't wait to add other blades from the Premier series to my block.

The Shun Premier knife is easily the best knife I have owned. Sharp, sharp and light and agile. I am not a pro with a knife, but this knife is the best and I have since purchased the Shun Premier 6 inch utility. Great product that gives me a lot of confidence. And to be fair, Chef Knives to Go has an outstanding after the sale relationship. This is the first review I have ever written in my life for anything and the only reason I am, is because getting an email from the owner shows a lot of class.

Very easy to sharpen... But the blade is super thin and super delicate...Tip can chip off very easily... So it's more of a knife for precise cutting rather than a work horse in a busy kitchen... Looks very nice though...

This knife is the sharpest one I've ever used, and quite frankly, a work of art.

This is my 5th knife from Shun, and by far my favorite. It's beauty is stunning. From the Damascus steel to the hammered finish, to the beautiful handle. The blade, like all Shuns is amazingly sharp. The only thing that I didn't like at first was the size of the handle. It's diameter is larger than other shun knife and seemed a little fat at first. But after using it a bit, I learned to enjoy the feel of it. Easily worth the investment. I just love this knife!!
