Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Shun Classic 5-Piece Asian Block Set. This 6-slot bamboo block comes with the Shun Classic 4-inch Vegetable Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 7-inch Asian Cook's Knife, and Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel. The vegetable knife features a clip point and flat edge for greater contact between the knife and the cutting board. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and sharp tip to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. The Asian cook's knife has a thinner and narrower blade than a standard chef's knife, making it light and nimble and well-suited to smaller hands. The honing steel realigns knife blades between sharpenings. The block protects knife blades while safely storing cutlery.
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 collection offers a wide assortment of traditional and modern blade shapes, making these knives a perfect fit for any kitchen. Each knife in the Shun Classic collection boasts all of the essential features that make Shun a top choice of professional chefs.
