This Shun Premier 7pc set model TDMS0700 offers a selection of the best selling knives in the line for a discounted price. The newly introduced Shun Premier line combines an authentic Japanese hand hammered look with the quality and performance that Shun is known for. The blade is made of VG10 steel clad with 16 layers on either side of the stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a "hamon" is formed. The hammered finished is known in Japanese as "tsuchime" and adds a striking appearance to the knife and also acts as hollow ground cavaties that reduce drag and quickly release food from the blade.
I bought this set as a wedding gift for my daughter’s wedding in a couple of weeks.
I was absolutely stunned by the shear beauty and obvious quality of these knives. They are almost to good to use. They should be placed behind glass and displayed in an art gallery! I want a set for myself now.
