Great Chef's need the perfect knife for any job and the Shun Classic Chef's 10 Piece Knife Block set does not disappoint. The set features 7 popular Shun Classic Knife Styles, including, a 3.5" Paring Knife, 6" Utility Knife, 8" Chef's Knife, 9" Hollow-Ground Slicer Knife, 8 1/4" Offset Bread Knife, 5.5" Santoku Knife and a 6" Boning/Filet Knife. Additionally, the set includes one Honing Steel to hone blades between professional sharpening, herb shears and a Shun 22-Slot Bamboo Block to hold it all beautifully, within easy reach. 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 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 you 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 family for generations.
