Come to class prepared with the Shun Classic 8-Piece Student Knife Set. This 8-slot black nylon knife roll comes with six Shun Classic knives: 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, 6-inch Boning and Fillet Knife, 9-inch Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife, and 9-inch Bread Knife. It also includes the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel to keep your knives in top condition.
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.
