Description: 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.
The san mai damascus blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times. A stainless steel VG-10 center core (Jigane) is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side. VG-10 "super steel" offers a long-lasting, high-performance edge with easy maintenance.
'D' shape black Pakkawood handles provide beauty and function. The 'D' shape is designed for right handed users and provides maximum comfort and control. The unique ebony Pakkawood handle consists of a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin to noteworthy results. Pakkawood provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance. A steel end-cap offers an attractive finishing touch, and the knives carry a limited lifetime warranty.
This nine-piece knife set by Shun provides an array of everyday essentials. The collection consists of six knives: a 2-1/2-inch bird's beak knife, a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, a 6-inch utility knife, an 8-inch chef's knife, a 9-inch slicing knife, and a 9-inch bread knife, as well as a honing rod to keep the blades sharp, a pair of kitchen shears, and an eleven slot bamboo storage block to keep all the pieces neatly organized and within reach.
