Become the master chef of your kitchen when you wield the precisioned cutting power of the Shun Premier 6 in. Chefs Knife. Calling to mind the hand-crafting techniques of ancient Japan, this chefs knife embodies the beauty and graceful handling power of hand-forged knives of old. Constructed out of VG10 steel core with 32 layers of stainless Damascus, this knife features a 16-degree convex ground edge. Beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision, you can navigate your way through onions, carrots, and potatoes like a true champion of root vegetables. The striking hammered finish called tsuchime in Japanese, acts similarly to a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing foods from the blade, so you can quickly move from one task to another. The walnut pakkawood handle nestles comfortably balanced in the hand, with the Shun logo embossed on the bottom end for balance and beauty. With a little practice and the right knife in hand, you'll be master of your kitchen in no time and - who knows - you may have to take on a sous chef.
