Your chef's knife will be the most-used knife in your kitchen, so you'll want to find the one that feels like an extension of your arm. The beautiful Shun Premier 8-in. Chef's Knife could be the one. This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier's thinner blades makes this chef's knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. The 8-in. length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing and dicing a full range of foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
