ENQUIRE


The Shun Premier 18cm Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chefs knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favourites. The straight blade makes this knife perfect for chopping.  The Santoku is as easy to use as a chefs knife and is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut). Slightly shorter than the standard chefs knife, the Shun Premier Santoku is light, agile, and very easy to manoeuvre. There’s just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the Premier Santoku’s versatility.  Many cooks swear by their Santoku for top performance.

Shun Premier calls to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan yet offers performance born from the latest advances in knife design and technology. Premier blades are thinner and lighter for fast and agile handling, while the blade design – with wide weight distribution from the tip to end cap – ensures stability and strength. Shun Premier blades are made of VG-MAX steel, clad with stainless Damascus. Where the steels meet, an attractive wavy line called a hamon is formed. Premier blades are ground to a quick taper edge that helps move food away from the blade quickly. The beautiful hand-hammered finish – tsuchime (tsoo-CHEE-may) in Japanese – also improves food release when cutting. The two-position handle, in rich walnut PakkaWood, offers a trigger grip for pull cuts as well as the perfect balance point for a pinch grip.

  • Blade Material: Proprietary VG-MAX hardened Japanese steel cutting core, each side with 34 layers (69 total including core) of SUS410/SUS431 pattern stainless steel Damascus cladding
  • Cutting Angle: Double bevelled 16° cutting angle on each side.
  • Hardness: 60 HRC.
