Shun Premier 7-inch Asian Cook’s Knife; High-Performance Japanese Knife; Lighter, Nimbler, Multi-Purpose Kitchen Knife; Handcrafted, Damascus Cladding, Hammered Tsuchime Finish, PakkaWood Handle

Product Description

Known as the ‘gyuto’ in Japan, the Asian Cook’s Knife is the Japanese equivalent of the chef’s knife; light and nimble to beautifully process meat and fish; also performs well on vegetables

Narrower than a traditional chef’s knife, yet with plenty of knuckle clearance on the cutting board; a go-to knife for a wide variety of kitchen tasks; handcrafted by skilled artisans

From Shun’s Premier series; reminiscent of hand-forged knives from ancient Japan; crafted from advanced, industry-leading materials in over 100 individual steps; VG-MAX super steel core, fine-grained, strong, hard

The very fine grain of Shun’s proprietary steel allows the blade to take and hold a razor-sharp, precision edge; layered Damascus cladding supports the core and adds stain resistance

A hammered ‘tsuchime’ finish acts as hollow-ground indentations to release food more quickly from the blade and reduce drag while chopping, slicing, dicing, mincing, and cutting
