Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Shun Classic Blonde 5-Piece Block Set. This 6-slot slimline block comes with the Shun Classic Blonde 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, and Shun Classic Blonde Combination Honing Steel. The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and 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 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 blonde 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 Blonde 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 Blonde collection boasts all of the essential features that make Shun a top choice of professional chefs.
