Collecting Shuns

Sun Nov 25, 2012 3:24 pm

Hi,
I've been collecting the Shun Premier knives and my Mom is asking what I want for Christmas. I'm wanting the santoku knife but I was wanting to know if you were planning on putting it on sale for Christmas. Do you have any plans on putting it on sale soon?
Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
Paige

Hi Page,

Shun sets the price on their knives so we don't have control over pricing. I don't think they're offering any additional sales this year.

Also I would encourage you to collect different knives because it's way more fun to try a variety of different steels and makers and you end up learning more about good knives in the process.

For instance, this Kanehiro is a unique and very cool knife. It's hand made in a small workshop by a very good blacksmith and it's reasonably priced. The steel is Ginsan which is harder and better performing than VG10 which is what Shun uses on the Premier line. Give it a try and I'll bet you will love it:

If you don't, you can send it back to me and I'll swap you for a Shun.
