The Asian version of the Chef's knife, Santoku knives are just as versatile and useful in the kitchen. Meaning "three virtues" in Japanese, some say Santokus are known for the three tasks at which they excel: slicing, dicing, and mincing. Others say it's a reference to its ability to slice vegetables, meat, and fish. It doesn't matter because all the above are true, and you can even toss fruit into the mix and the ability to chop. The Shun Premier Santoku Knife's belly is slightly curved for push cutting and easy mincing of herbs and garlic. The 16° cutting angle melts through any and all competition with ease and perfection. Handcrafted in Japan. Lifetime Warranty.
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.
