In stock

The core of the Shun Premier blade is made of extremely hard VG Max steel and is sheathed in 32 layers of Damascus steel. This combination of different types of steel makes the edge hard and elastic at the same time. The blade, which is ground on both sides, is comfortable to handle due to its light weight and guarantees a clean and precise cut. The applied hammerblow surface – known in Japan as Tsuchime - not only has aesthetic reasons, but also facilitates, thanks to the small air cushions created, the release of the cut material from the blade.

Thanks to its symmetrical shape, it is suitable for both left- and right-handed users. A continuous tang ensures stability and balance whilst cutting. As a special touch, the handle's end has been engraved with Tim Mälzer's bull's head, the professional chef's trademark.
