Begin your cutlery collection with the Shun Classic 3-Piece Starter Set. It comes in a convenient storage box and includes the Shun Classic 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, and 8-inch Chef's Knife. The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The blade tapers to a sharp, pointed tip. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and a sharp tip to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. The chef's knife is an all-purpose knife that can mince herbs, dice vegetables, and slice through thick rinds and large cuts of meat.
The high performance Damascus-clad blades are made from a VG-MAX steel core with 34 layers of steel on each side. The distinctive wavy pattern is formed as the blade is ground and bead-blasted from the spine to the razor-sharp edge, hand-sharpened to a 16-degree cutting angle. VG-MAX stainless steel is proprietary to Shun. It includes a higher percentage of carbon for greater strength and durability. This alloy combines multiple other metals, including chromium, cobalt, vanadium, molybdenum and tungsten, to further improve wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and strength. Shun Classic knife blades are stronger, more durable, and stay sharper longer. The ebony PakkaWood handles are made from genuine hardwood and resin. The addition of resin makes the wood moisture-resistant, strong, and durable. The D-shape of the handle is designed to fit comfortably in your hand.
The Shun Classic Carving Knife Set includes the Shun Classic Carving Fork and Shun Classic Carving Knife. This set is ideal for carving meat and poultry. The fork holds food steady, while the knife slices easily with a single stroke. This carving set comes in a convenient storage box.
