A chef’s knife is a personal choice. That’s why Shun offers so many different lines and blade lengths. For instance in the same way that some cooks prefer a longer chef’s knife others prefer a shorter length. For cooks who enjoy the lightweight nimbleness of a shorter blade we offer the Shun Premier 6-in. Chef’s Knife. Of course it performs all the tasks for which you choose a chef’s knife from slicing dicing and chopping to making rocking cuts through herbs. Yet it also offers the quick agile performance and high degree of control that a slightly smaller knife can provide.

The Shun Premier 6-in. Chef’s Knife is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX super steel to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade where the steels meet an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
