A generous gift for an avid cook, this Shun Classic 3-piece set is perfect for both novices and seasoned gourmets. You’ll find the core knives every kitchen needs—3½" paring, 6" utility, and 8" chef’s—presented in a beautiful storage box.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handles. Behind each knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

Shun’s VG-MAX steel core—known for its incredible edge retention—is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel, which allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knives meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan.

CLASSIC 3-PIECE SET INCLUDES:

3½" PARING KNIFE
Ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Generally, you’ll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves.

6" UTILITY KNIFE
Great for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. The utility knife is sometimes called a sandwich knife because it works well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.

8" CHEF’S KNIFE
This powerful kitchen multi-tasker is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping large quantities of fruits, vegetables, meats, and more. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan.

VG-MAX“SUPER STEEL” CORE The higher density of VG10 steel allows it to be tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 61 and still have the flexibility and strength to take and keep a perfect edge. VG-MAX’s natural tendency is to remain straight and true. When blade is used, the edge automatically straightens out and stays sharp longer.

METICULOUSLY CRAFTED Each Shun Classic knife is constructed using the kasumi method, a traditional Japanese process used to create samurai swords. Sixteen layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel are pounded to 3/1000ths of an inch, then clad on each side of the VG-MAX core. This 32-layer forged construction gives the blade strength, stain resistance, incredible cutting performance, and an elegant Damascus pattern unique to each knife.

RAZOR-SHARP BLADE With a cutting edge ground to a 16° angle on each side, this is one of the sharpest knives you’ll ever find. Plus, the exotic Japanese steels used in the cutting core ensure the blade holds its ultra-sharp edge without the need for excessive re-sharpening.

USER–FRIENDLY DESIGN Comfortable D-shaped handle and perfectly balanced blade offer precise control and reduce fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks. Handle is made of moisture-resistant pakkawood—a fused blend of hardwood veneers and phenolic resin.

A GREAT VALUE ON 3 EXCEPTIONAL KNIVES A generous gift for an avid cook, this Shun Classic 3-piece set is perfect for both novices and seasoned gourmets. You’ll find the core knives that every kitchen needs—3½" paring, 6" utility, and 8" chef’s—presented in a beautiful storage box.

Very Sharp
I have had this set as well as several other Shun knives for several years. These knives are very sharp. The only issue I have had is with the blade ""chipping"" on the chef knife. The actual edge is brittle due to the type of the stainless used in them. Despite this I still think they are excellent knives
