Our culinary student sets feature the perfect knives to assist students in pursuing their creative passion for food.

Our Shun Student 8-Piece Student Set features the same knives coveted by professionals in the culinary industry, and are NSF approved to use in commercial kitchens. Each set features a 3.5" Paring Knife, 6" Utility Knife, 8" Chef's Knife, 9" Bread Knife, 9" Hollow Ground Slicing Knife, 6" Boning/Fillet Knife, Honing Steel, and Shun 8 Slot Knife Roll. Shun Classic knife blades are made with solid VG10 super steel and feature a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle on each side. The ebony D-Shape PakkaWood handles have that sleek, sophisticated look that makes these knives feel more like art than an instrument, and are specifically designed for premium applications. The specially shaped handles rest perfectly in the curve of the fingers, for a more secure grip while handles remain moisture resistant. The bolster is ground out more on the right side for proper finger placement, as well as balancing the knives perfectly. Precision blades and handle engineering mean long-lasting use and comfort-no matter how large or small your kitchen prep may be. Crafted in Seki City Japan, our Shun Classics are forged in the tradition of samurai sword making. These heirloom quality knives will be a prized treasure you'll want to pass down to the family for generations.
