The Shun Premier Blonde 7-in. Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chef's knife that is a favorite amongst chefs. It easily handles all the essential kitchen cutting tasks. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, the Shun Premier Blonde Santoku is light, agile, and very easy to handle. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which adds to its versatility. The santoku is as easy to use as any chef's knife and is suited for down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut).
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.
