The Shun Premier 3 Piece Knife set is beautfully presented in a special Shun gift box. Each set contains 1 each of the following knives; Shun Premier Paring Knife 9cm, Utility Knife 15cm & Chefs Knife 20cm.

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. 

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.
