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 cooking knife. The series' name originates from this fine grain, which is reminiscent of water's surface rippling in the rain (Jap: Minamo).
