The first thing that catches the eye about the beautiful Shun Premier series is its magnificent tsuchime (tsoo-CHEE-may) finish. This hammered finish combined with Premier’s mirror blade polish and intricately layered Damascus, gives Shun Premier a look that is at once rustic and sophisticated. But the real beauty of Premier is how it performs. Premier is designed to provide exceptionally agile handling. The lightweight, razor-sharp blades are quick and precise. The palm swell on the handle nestles into the hand to provide confident control – for both smaller and larger hands. The embossed endcap and brass ring provide both balance and beauty.
