Made in Japan.
This compact set provides the core knives that every kitchen needs. The set includes the Paring knife, perfect for peeling, coring, trimming or other intricate work, and the Utility knife, which is ideal for tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming vegetables. Finally, there's the Chef's knife, THE must-have, all-purpose kitchen knife. The three-piece Classic Starter set comes complete in a beautiful bamboo presentation and storage box.
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, creating a woodgrain pattern 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.
