The Shun Premier Slicing Knife's long and extremely sharp blade enables thin slicing of meat, ham and fish with a single slice. Perfect for sashimi.

The Shun Premier Slicing Knife enables you to cut thin, even slices. With the Shun Premier Slicing Knife’s longer length, narrower blade, and Shun-sharp edge you can make long, even slices without tearing or sawing. This kind of clean cut keeps more of the meat juices—and thus more of the flavour—inside the meat, rather than pooling on the cutting board. The Shun Premier Slicing Knife’s 24cm blade means you can cut slices with a single, long stroke. The narrow profile and razor-sharp Shun edge let the blade glide through the meat with less friction so each slice is perfect. Ideal for slicing a wide variety of meats and fish with a single slice.

All Shun Premier knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.

Cleaning.
As with any lifetime investment, it is important to take the best care possible in order to prolong the life of your knife. Shun recommends that you protect your investment by hand-washing your blades with gentle dish soap. Do not use soaps with citrus extracts; they can promote rust. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Let the knives air dry for a few minutes before returning them to storage.

Never leave your knife sitting in a sink full of soapy water, metal does not respond well to being submerged in water for prolonged periods of time.

Sharpening.
In order to maximise the life of the blade, regular honing with a Shun Honing Steel will be necessary. Weekly honing will extend the time between sharpening significantly. When the time comes to sharpen these premium blades, we recommend using a Shun Whetstone, the Shun Electric Knife Sharpener (specifically designed to sharpen Shun’s 16° blade angle), or sending your knives to a professional sharpener.
