EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL VALUE A generous gift for an avid cook, this Shun Classic 7-piece block set is perfect for both novices and seasoned gourmets. It features the essential knives you need to create a lifetime of delicious meals, including: 3½" paring, 6" utility, 7" granton-edge santoku, and 9" bread, along with kitchen shears, sharpening steel, and a handsome bamboo storage block.

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 Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knives meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.

Features Hide

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.

VG10 “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. VG10’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 VG10 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.

A GREAT VALUE ON SEVEN EXCEPTIONAL PIECES A generous gift for an avid cook, this Shun Classic 7-piece block set is perfect for both novices and seasoned gourmets. It features the essential knives you need to create a lifetime of delicious meals, including: 3½" paring, 6" utility, 7" granton-edge santoku, and 9" bread, along with kitchen shears, sharpening steel, and a handsome bamboo storage block.

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

Sharp and balanced
My wife gave me this set as a gift. I wasn't sure about them so we went to the store and tried various brands and models. This ended up being the set that I liked the best. Super sharp, well balanced, comfortable grip and they look stunning. Also bought the matching slicing knife. I already had a Shun 10" chef's, so now I'm set. Buy good knives, if you take care of them, they'll last long enough for you to forget how much you paid.

One note, the angle of the cutting edge is several degrees steeper than most knives so they have to be sharpened by someone who knows what they're doing. Shun offers free sharpening, you have to pay for shipping. They're supposed to hold an edge well, so sharpening should be infrequent.

Best knives ever....but they must be sharpened after each use as they are forged.

Previous experience with Shun knives left me in love with this particular line. I was cursed with tiny midget hands (ok... that's an exaggeration... but I do have to buy women-size gloves =/), and the handles feel absolutely perfect when held. I've used the three knives I bought separately for almost two years and they are absolutely fan-frinkin-tastic. When the set came on sale, I just had to snag it up. (much cheaper than buying individually)

Any recommendations as to which 7-piece knife set to get? So many choices... I'm fine spending a bit more if the more expensive ones are really better, but not if there's no real difference. It's just more enjoyable using knives that feel good and cut well. We use them for normal family cooking - nothing extreme.

BEST ANSWER: Bought the myabi evolution set for my son's family. I have purchased knives individually, some of them on sale. I like the sharpness, more western style handle, and a little more weight. They are nice, but a luxury item.
How many extra slots are left in the block?

I'd like to get this set to complement my growing collection, but I'm not sure if my current knives will fit in the block. I have four, ranging in length from 3- to 8-inch. How many extra slots are there
A shopper on Nov 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: A generous gift for an avid cook, this Shun Classic 7-piece block set is perfect for both novices and seasoned gourmets. It features the essential knives you need to create a lifetime of delicious meals, including: 3_"" paring, 6"" utility, 7"" granton-edge santoku, and 9"" bread, along with kitchen shears, sharpening steel, and a handsome bamboo storage block. There are actually four extra slots in this block and they should fit the knives that you currently have
Can you order just the knife block?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This block is not sold separately.
6"" utility = serrated/scalloped edge

I'm wondering if the utility knife included in the set has a serrated or scalloped blade?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The utility knife in this set has a straight edge.
