A Shun Premier Santoku Knife is an ideal companion for your dry aging, charcuterie or salumi projects. It feels like an extension of your arm that is able to produce razor thin slices of salumi, shave the bark off of that perfectly dry aged subprimal or finely dice a pancetta for that special pasta dish. The Shun Premier 7-in. Santoku Knife will make most kitchen tasks a pleasure. The blade is light and sharp, making any slicing task a breeze. Best of all you will love the way it looks. Due to the curved belly of the Shun Santoku Knife, this knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

A Premier Combination Honing Tool to Keep Your Edge Sharp

  • Built-in angle guide makes precision honing easy
  • Stainless steel with micro ribs
  • Handle: Walnut PakkaWood® with signature D-grip for a comfortable hold 
  • Rod length: 9 in. (22.9 cm)

As you use your Shun knife, the razor-sharp edge naturally curls ever so slightly, causing the sharpest end to bend away from the cutting edge. This is easily remedied by honing with the Shun Premier Combination Honing Steel. The signature honing steel allows you to easily realign the edge of the blade so the sharpest surface comes in contact with the food. The Shun Premier Combination Honing Steel provides a guide for the correct 16° Shun angle and offers two honing surfaces: a smooth one for day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing. Making a habit of honing your fine Shun knives will allow you to sharpen them less frequently.
