CLASSIC 7–PIECE BLOCK 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.

7" GRANTON-EDGE SANTOKU Santoku means “Three Virtues” in Japanese and this knife gets its name for the three strengths it demonstrates in the kitchen: cutting vegetables, thin-boned meats, and fish. Oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking.

9" BREAD KNIFE Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully crusty, the Shun Classic bread knife, with its wide, low-frequency serrations, is up to the task. Gently saw back and forth to cut perfect slices with no unsightly rips or tears.

KITCHEN SHEARS A kitchen essential: handy for trimming pie dough, snipping chives, removing fat from raw poultry, and much more.

SHARPENING STEEL Enables you to maintain the razor-sharp edges of your Shun Classic knives.

BAMBOO STORAGE BLOCK Displays your elegant cutlery, keeping knives safe and secure between uses.

VG-MAX “SUPER STEEL” CORE The higher density of VG-MAX 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 that 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.

Holds edge and cuts through anything!
These knives are remarkable! I love Japanese knives because they are a little lighter, well balanced, often sharper, and hold their edge for longer. The Shun is cut at a 16th of a degree- these means it is a sharp (very sharp :)) knife AND it will hold its edge- it is also made out of true damascus steel, stainless, and VG-10 and has 32 layers!. I use these knives for everything from bread to fish and steak. If you bought these knives individually it would add up to well over $600!! Great value! I would only add an 8"" Chefs knife to this se

These Knives Changed My LIfe!
I apparently never really knew what a high quality, sharp knife was until I bought these knives upon a recommendation from a friend. ""Why would I possibly want to buy new knives, let alone one's this expensive?"" I asked him. Then he had me try one at the store. I was speechless. I had no idea what I was missing having been slaving away using my old wedding set for the last 22 years. These knives have literally been a lifesaver. No more sawing and struggling. The handles are balanced and comfortable to hold. Prepwork is a pleasure. They are super scary sharp and I respect them tremendously. I am adding to my collection slowly, but surely, purchasing others as I discover I need them. This was one of the smartest impulse buys I have ever made and I rarely go by impulse. I usually research every single thing I buy. I have absolutely no regrets

Blades that Chip- Shun knife set
I was so excited when my husband bought these knives for me for Christmas a few years ago because they are the sharpest knives I had ever used. It is a complete shame that after only a few years of using these knives the blades are chipping. Shouldn't these expensive knives last longer then a couple years?
It makes me wonder where the little sliver of metal goes. In the food I prepare? Yuck! I am very disappointed in the quality of steel especially with the price we paid

Flawless but over expensive
First of all,
I bought these thinking I could do a good job with them.
I was slightly disappointed that I ordered them online rather than wait for a friend to take me to the store near my house.
When they arrived I was impressed by the packaging and even more impressed with how they appeared. The design was immaculate and cutting was easy. I didn't like the sharpening aspect. Who knows how to sharpen a knife with a rod like instrument?
I believe these knives are for full time chefs who do not mind the oriental soundness of ""Shun."" In English that means ""to avoid.""
If you want to take a risk and try to respect the symbolism and oriental-ness of this high quality set of knives , think about the price too. If that does not set you back, go ahead, make seki city rich
