Shun Premier 8" Chef - SOLD!

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).

Is the steel in the premier that different than the classics? How does this one sharpen?

As much as I've read, most shins are vg10, unless otherwise specified. I think Mark has some on the site

Thanks guys!
Yes, the Shun Premier is VG-10 (VGmax is, I believe, just they're own brand name).
It sharpens easily, and gets rather wicked. In a home environment I find the Premier to hold its wikedest edge for a few sessions, and the stay dangerously sharp for a few weeks afterwards (on a good board, and a knowing hand, if that makes any sense :) )

I am definitely interested but cannot message you since I just joined here a couple of days ago. I am not sure what the protocol is or how we can get in touch but perhaps an admin can run third party and let us contact each other somehow ...maybe exchanging my e-mail address privately or via e-mail.

Just bought a set of Shun Classics for my fiancee and she really liked them, was thinking of giving it to her as a birthday present.

I just like the overall feel of the premieres better, even though the steel seems the same. Also they seem ground thinner but I can't say for sure. Perhaps, it just a mentality and I was fooled.
