The Shun Premier Tim Mälzer Series has been tailored specifically to the needs and requirements of professional chefs. The high-quality material properties of the Shun Classic Series are combined with a new and commanding overall appearance. The blade is divided into three different textures: The blade's back down to its middle has been hammered to create a surface known as Tsuchime. This is followed by a fine matt Damascus grain typical for Shun. The cores of the blades are made from hard and durable VG-MAX steel to provide incredible sharpness and a long-lasting cutting ability. The meticulously machined blade is paired with a brown, grained pakkawood handle.
The serrated bread knives are characterised by their sections of grooves that run perpendicular to the blade edge to enable cutting without the use of excessive force. Perfect for cutting through hard crusts of bread loaves, baguettes, bagels, and for soft items such as tomatoes, cakes with fluffy textures; primarily for most foods with a hard exterior but soft interior.
