EXCLUSIVE A generous gift for an avid cook, this Shun Classic 10-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 in a handsome 11-slot 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. METICULOUSLY CRAFTED Each Shun Classic knife is constructed using the Kasumi method, a traditional Japanese process used to create Samurai swords. 16 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.

Features Hide

CLASSIC 10–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.

5½" HOLLOW-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" HOLLOW-GROUND SLICING KNIFE This hollow-ground slicing knife’s long, narrow blade allows you to make a cleaner cut, which helps keep more of the juices—and thus more of the flavor—trapped in the meat.

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.

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.

6" U2 ULTIMATE UTILITY KNIFE A low–frequency serrated edge makes this knife perfect for slicing delicate thin–skinned fruits and vegetables, as well as chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing. The broad blade and curved belly enable you to rock the knife on the cutting board. Plus, it makes a great sandwich knife: use the wide blade and rounded tip for spreading condiments and the serrated edge for slicing.

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. Features 11 slots, enabling you to easily expand your collection.

A fantastic set of knives
I sought out a good set of knives, that would help me be more effective in the kitchen. I didn't expect to love these knives as much as I do. My only drawback is the serrated utility knife, I use it to slice tomatoes but find that the serrations don't allow a flat enough edge to cut through the thin skin of the tomatoes. Considering this is my only gripe, I can't say enough about how much quality there is in each of the knives in this set. The scissors are surprisingly sharp and cut packaging very, very easily. They come apart so that allows for more thorough cleaning. The honing steel is so easy to use, with the notch cut out of the hilt, to get just the right angle. I hone all of my knives (except for the serrated ones) after every single use. I've used all of the knives in this set for various purposes and they are just SO EASY to use. I buy more fruits and vegetables now, just so I can have a couple hours to cut things with my chef's knife. Great quality and fantastic feel in my hand.
