If you like your santoku, you will love this Shun Premier 8" Sumo Santoku. It is a santoku plus. Wider than a regular-sized santoku, this knife is extremely efficient for slicing and chopping a full range of vegetables, meats and poultry. The wider blade makes it easier to cut through larger or thicker foods and makes scooping up prepared foods a breeze for quick transfer to the cooking pot or pan. Once you try it, you may just find that it becomes one of your favorite go-to knives.

The Shun Premier Sumo Santoku is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
