Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Behind the knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
The Shun Classic 7-Piece Essential Block Set gives you all the must-have pieces of kitchen cutlery in one beautiful bamboo block. In addition to key pieces like the Shun Classic Paring, Utility, and Chef's knives, the set also includes the Bread knife with its low-frequency serrations and the handy Kitchen Shears that are so helpful when opening packages. (For easy cleaning, the shears unhinge, too.) This essential set comes in its own laminated bamboo block with extra open slots so you can continue to expand your Shun collection.
