Pros: extremely hard, unrivalled sharpness
The Shun series of chef‘s knives is one of the most comprehensive damask steel series worldwide and highly appreciated by top class professionals as well as ambitious hobby chefs. Shun professional chef’s knives are made from specific stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The core layer is made from V-Gold-10-steel. This is an extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and corrosion-resistant steel that gives the blade a sharpness that is second to none. The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material. This sharpness together with the well-balanced weight of the knife makes for tireless work.

Pros: Very sharp, slices with ease lifetime warranty with Free sharpening.?
Cons: Short lifespan, tiny v shaped grooves form quickly on the blade, sending the knives to the Company in Utah is a hassle. Now they charge for it!
These knives are wonderful, very nice to use, fits great in the hand but, the one con is the tiny v grooves that show up on the specially honed blades! ALL of my sets of Shun knives have this problem.
They must be sharpened often. Use only the proper cutting board & hand wash always & they will treat you to sliced heaven for a long while.
This knife is the best knife in my collection. I purchased it about 4 years ago.... Used it every day... The best of all my knives so far. Lovin it!!!!

Comments

I recently purchased the 6 in chef...Shun Premiere....I absolutely love the way the handle fits my hand, and it's super sharp. I hope that it holds up well . I picked Shun because I wanted to be able to see the knife and hold it first before purchasing and can't do that with most Japanese blades. I also liked that it has a good warranty, some of the others don't and Im thinking returning to Japan could be a real hassle...lol.
