The Shun Premier 18cm Santoku is a beautiful, Asian-inspired chefs knife that many cooks today have added to their kitchen favourites. The Santoku is as easy to use as a chefs knife and is especially well suited to a down-and-forward cutting motion (push cut). Slightly shorter than the standard chefs knife, the Shun Premier Santoku is light, agile, and very easy to manoeuvre. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the Premier Santoku's versatility. Many cooks swear by their Santoku for top performance.
All Shun Premier knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.
