WTS Shun Premier 8" Chef

Post by Altadan » Mon Oct 16, 2017 1:35 pm

I'm looking to sell and make room on the magnet strip (and in the wife's heart and mind) for a knife with a different profile.
Price 145$, paypal and shipping to the lower 48states included.

What can I say? It's a great merge of Eastern cutting abilities, and Western handling.
Besides the beautiful eye-candy and pride of possession this knife gives, it also perform like a fiend. As Shun advertises, the tsuchime hammer-finish really does aid in food release. The VG10 cuts beautifully, and holds its edge well.
The blade is very thin behind the edge, and reaches a wispy-thin tip. It's got height at 51mm, with plenty of knuckle-clearance, and a very comfy oval handle that fills the hand and inspires confidence.
While the whole knife comes in at 7.5oz (214g), the blade itself is nimble.

It's in good condition - handle is flawless, straight and whole from heel-to-tip, and outside of a few small lines and scuffs that came with use and sharpening its unblemished (see photos).

In the interest of widening my acquaintance with the j-knives' world, I would consider trading-in too

Bump, and price a last price reduction - 135$

Also, they say Shuns are great performers, but have better competitors <in their price range> (so they say, at least). This Shun, however, is at a much lower price - so get it, and help a brother expand ;) . I can wholly confirm this Shun is a great performer (gets through the sweet potatoes beautifully, not to mention onions, shrooms etc).
