Shun – Tim Malzer Minamo – Paring Knife 9cm

The Shun Minamo Series forms an exquisitely elegant and individual addition to the premium class of the Shun Premier Series of knives.

The series unites Japanese and European elements in an especially artful manner.

Tim Malzer came up with the idea to develop a combination of the typically Japanese Santoku knife and the classic European chef’s knife.This fusion served as the basis for three distinct blade shapes.

Shun Premier Tim Malzer Minamo Handle

Thanks to its symmetrical shape, the black pakkawood handle is suitable for both left-and right-handed users.

The slight arch on the handle’s underside enables a comfortable fit.

The forged tang ensures a perfect balance between blade and handle.

Shun Premier Tim Mlzer Minamo Blade

The Shun Minamo blade’s core consists of extremely hard VG-MAX steel (61 (1) HRC), wrapped in 32 layers of Damascus steel.

The blades’ high-gloss finish is completed with a Damascus grain.

The combination of Santoku and cooking knife’s hybrid nature embodied in the blade’s rectangular form, easily allows both rocking movements as well as the accurate chopping of cutting materials. The blades are double-edged.

Shun Premier

Shun Premier calls to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan yet offers performance born from the latest advances in cutlery design and technology.

High Quality Steel

The Shun Premier knife boasts a cutting-edge VG-MAX core, the newest addition to the VG line of "super steels." This advanced material is highly resistant to wear and corrosion while maintaining an exceptionally sharp edge. The knife's core is supported and protected by a stunning Damascus cladding consisting of 68 micro layers, which not only enhances its appearance but also provides additional strength and durability.

Outstanding Sharpness

Shun knives excel with thinner, lighter, and sharper blades. The 16° cutting angle per side (32° comprehensive) achieves outstanding sharpness and accuracy, enhancing your cutting efficiency and longevity.

Traditional Techniques

Showcasing traditional handcrafting techniques. These knives feature a striking hamon, an alluring wavy line where the different steels meet. The blades are meticulously ground to a quick taper edge, allowing for swift and efficient food movement. Additionally, the beautiful hammered finish, known as tsuchime in Japanese, enhances food release during cutting.

PakkaWood Handle

All Premier knives feature a robust and moisture-resistant handle made from Walnut Pakkawood, a premium resin-impregnated hardwood. Its contoured design offers a comfortable and secure grip for both right-handed and left-handed users. The handle's embossed end cap adds balance and enhances its aesthetic appeal. Additionally, the integrated tang of the knife ensures stability and balance during use.
