Shun Classic 9-Piece Chef’s Choice Block Set

No reviews yet Write a Review

This 9-piece Shun Classic set has the essential kitchen knives but goes beyond the basics and provides a chef-ready set with cutlery for professional level cooking at home.  The 8” chef’s knife and the 5.5” Santoku give you cutting versatility.  The 9” Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife has hollow-ground indentations for easy, perfect slicing.  A Boning/Fillet knife gives you extra help in working with meat, poultry, and fish. The set also includes a utility knife, paring knife and an offset bread knife.  The honing steel will help maintain the Shun-sharp edges.  

Shun knives are renowned for their razor sharp cutting edge.  They are made in Japan where samurai sword making gave rise to crafting these exceptional knives.  Shun uses extremely hard VG-MAX steel as its core and layers it in 34 layers of stainless steel on each side of the blade.  The layers of stainless steel protect the VG-MAX steel and provide the engaging Damascus finish.  Sharpening to a 16° angle on each side allows for paper thin slicing.  The cutting edge is hardened to 61 degrees Rockwell so it will rarely need sharpening.  These knives have narrower, lighter blades that reduce fatigue when compared with most western knives.

The handles are D shaped for an ergonomic fit.  They are extremely durable and moisture resistant.  The ebony PakkaWood handles have a classic presence and the metal end cap serves to protect and balance the knives. 

Shun knives should be washed by hand with a non scratch cloth or sponge, warm water, and mild dish soap.  Rinse thoroughly and dry immediately.  Never put these knives in the dishwasher as the chemicals in dishwasher soap can damage the finish.  Avoid cutting on glass, ceramic, or stone boards as they will damage the knife edge.
