Your chef's knife will be the most-used knife in your kitchen, so you want to find the one that feels like an extension of your arm. The beautiful Shun Premier Blonde 8-in. Chef's Knife just may be the one. This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier Blonde's thinner blades makes this chef's knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. The 8-in. length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing and dicing a full range of foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, this precision kitchen knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "Shoon") have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
