Faraday’s carries the Shun Classic, Shun Premier and Shun Sora kitchen knife lines made by KAI USA.
Shun’s newest offering, the Premier line, is an elegant and beautiful line of knives, unlike any knives you own. VG-MAX cutting core; the latest in the VG line of “super steels”; wear resistant, corrosion resistant, holds a fine, sharp edge; 16° each side. 68 micro layers of Damascus cladding look beautiful, support and protect the core. The knives are hammered by hand with a technique known as tsuchime, giving a beautiful finish that works to reduce knife dragging while preventing food from sticking to the blade. The beautifully grained walnut PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun logo embossed on the bottom adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in the hand or at rest in the block.
It is not recommended to put Shun Premier (or any quality knife) in the dishwasher.
