The Shun Premier Chefs Knife is shaped in the traditional European style and is an all purpose knife suitable for chopping, shredding, cutting, slicing and cubing all meat, fish and vegetables.
A chefs 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 chefs knife, others prefer a shorter length. For cooks who enjoy the lightweight nimbleness of a shorter blade, we offer the Shun Premier 15cm Chefs Knife. Of course, it performs all the tasks for which you choose a chefs 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.
All Shun Premier knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.
