Product Description

This ultra-efficient six-piece set includes the three blades a typical home chef uses most: an eight-inch chef’s knife for all-around kitchen work like mincing garlic and chopping vegetables, a parer for small-scale tasks like trimming and peeling, and a utility knife for slicing meats, sandwiches, and other sundries. Also included are shears for snipping herbs or opening packages, a bamboo block to store and protect knives, and a sharpening steel. Attractively packaged in a special gift box, this set makes an unforgettable gift for newlyweds, budding chefs, or anyone who appreciates kitchen tools as beautiful as they are functional and long-lasting.
Shun knives are made from VG-10 stainless steel, specially constructed to be harder, less brittle, but also more flexible than traditional steel formulations. The VG-10 core is then clad with 16 full layers of high-carbon stainless steel on each side, for a grand total of 33 layers. These layers not only protect the VG-10, they create an exquisitely-detailed surface reminiscent of Damascus or pattern-forged steel, the kind once used for Samurai swords. As a result, these knives are simply stunning to look at--much like antique Damascus knives but without their tendency to rust. As an additional benefit, the slight patterning helps slice rather than crush delicate foods and keeps cut food from sticking to the blade. Like many Asian-style knives, these feature handles that are especially suited to smaller users. In contrast to the traditional round profile, however, Shun’s are D-shaped to prevent the knife from twisting in the hand, providing extra stability and a firm grip. The handles are made from ebony-colored Pakkawood, a fused blend of hardwood veneers imbued with waterproof resin that combines the warmth and traditional look and feel of wood with the strength and durability of plastic. The offset stainless steel bolster is designed for ergonomic comfort and maximum safety, while a stainless steel end cap provides the finishing touch. As sturdy as they are lovely, these knives are officially safe to put in the dishwasher--although they’re so good-looking you might find yourself hard-pressed to do so. Shun knives are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

Why Buy Shun Classic:

Born of the ancient samurai-sword-making tradition and hand-finished for precision and beauty, Shun Classic is an ideal choice for anyone buying their first Japanese knife or 50th. The high-quality line of cutlery makes a worthwhile addition to any chef's arsenal of tools--it's used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Produced in the widest variety of specialized styles, the Classic line features both traditional European blade shapes and innovative cutting-edge designs.

Shun Classic's amazingly sharp blade is famous for both edge retention and ease of sharpening. Each blade has a core of VG-10 "Super Steel" with a Pattern Damascus cladding of 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel--16 layers on either side. While the wood grain pattern enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.

NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.

Detailed Features

  • Blade core consists of high-carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years.
  • Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box. This is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20-22 degrees.
  • Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain.
  • Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing.
  • D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping the knife's handle secure in the hand during use.
  • Available standard in D-shaped handle styles or by special order in reverse D-shaped handle styles.
  • Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens.
  • Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing.
  • Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer.
  • Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty.
