In Japan, this knife style is known as a gyuto and is the Japanese equivalent of the chef's knife. It's an all-purpose knife, ideal for meat and fish, yet it also performs beautifully on vegetables. If you're looking for a lighter, more nimble multi-purpose kitchen knife, the Shun Premier 7 inch Asian Cook's Knife is sure to become your go-to knife for a wide range of food preparation tasks. While the blade is extremely strong and will hold its edge, Japanese Steel does not have flexibility so we do not advise using this knife on bone in meats, frozen fruits, or stone cutting boards. Faraday's carries the Shun Classic, Shun Premier and Shun Kanso kitchen knife lines made by KAI USA. The Shun Premier line is an elegant and beautiful line of knives, unlike any knives you own. The VG-MAX cutting core is wear resistant, corrosion resistant, and holds a fine, sharp edge with a 16-degree angle on each side. 68 micro layers of Damascus cladding look beautiful, support and protect the core. Each knife is 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.
