Includes the following Shun Premier knives: 4" Paring Knife 6 1/2" Serrated Utility Knife 8" Chef's Knife Herb Shears Honing Steel 11-Slot Bamboo Block The Shun Premier Collection harkens back to traditional craftsmanship of Japanese blades, including swords and knives. All blades are constructed of layers of Damascus steel for a sturdy blade that takes a sharp edge easily and retains it. The knives are sharpened to a single-bevel and fashioned extremely thin for precise cuts. A granton edge creates a semblance of a non-stick surface by allowing air between the blade and food so chefs can cut swifter and smoother. The side of the blade features a hand-hammered appearance (called Tsuchime in Japanese) for a look that resembles ancient blades constructed by hand. The signature Shun emblem is emblazoned on the blade and the base end-cap. Stainless bolsters hold each blade in perfect balance to the contoured handle. Made of dark Pakkawood the handle is given a D-shape for a more natural feel in the hand. The exposed wood-grain adds to the old world charm of the Premier knives.

Shun

Shun named its Shima Steak Knife Set for Tokyo?s famous Shima Steakhouse, where diners from all over the world enjoy some of the w...orld?s finest beef. Inspired by Shima, Shun created a steak knife that can make even the world?s best steak taste better. Here?s why the right steak knife makes a difference: Much of the delicious flavor in steak is contained in its juices, which are held inside by the fibers of the meat. Cutting with Shima?s razor-sharp 16° edge means that far fewer meat fibers are cut with each slice, so that more of the juices and more of the flavor remain exactly where they belong?in the steak. Shima?s long five-inch blade with its slight recurve is designed for easy, one-pass slicing. Place Shima?s blade flat against any surface and you?ll see that the blade only touches the surface near the tip and at the heel. The rest of the blade is curved slightly inward. This shape is designed to ensure a smooth slice, whether pushing the blade forward or pulling it back. If the blade were flat, it would simply crush the steak, forcing you to ?saw? through the meat. With the recurve, you start the slice at the front of the blade and push forward or pull back through the entire length of the blade. The edge contacts the meat at a slight angle and has a smaller point of initial contact, making it much easier to slice the food?without the resistance and ?crushing? experienced with a blade that doesn?t have the recurve. The Shima?s recurved blade is also useful when cutting on a plate that has a lip. The shape enables the user to continue their slice all the way to the edge of the plate. Shima?s full-tang construction makes it an exceptionally well-balanced knife. The handle is slim, contoured to fit the hand, and tapers as it nears the blade. This enables a slight pinch grip for comfortable control. The slim, flat handle provides lateral stability, ensuring that the knife won?t rotate or twist in your hand. The combination of the slim handle and gentle contouring provides easy, nearly effortless control while dining. The PakkaWood handle scales, made of genuine hardwood and impregnated with resin, are beautiful, water resistant, and won?t harbor bacteria. As a finishing touch, Shima handles are decorated with inlaid steel rondels. Made in Japan. read more

The Shun Blue Steel series was developed in partnership with award-winning chef Chris Cosentino, known for his ?nose to tail? phil...osophy of using the whole animal. These traditional Japanese knives feature a core of blue steel?a fine-grained carbon steel favored by professional chefs for its blazing sharpness? that is encased between two layers of stainless steel. This set equips you with three essential knives from the Japanese kitchen?the honesuki, the kiritsuke and a multipurpose utility/butcher knife?for covering a wide range of cutting tasks. Kiritsuke knife: In Japan, using a kiritsuke is a sign of a master chef. A skilled cook can do just about anything with this long-bladed knife, which functions like a chefs knife for all-purpose chopping, thin slicing and mincing. Utility/butcher knife: Excels at breaking down larger pieces of meat into cuts for cooking, and makes quick work of separating meat from bone. The size and shape also makes it an ideal all-purpose utility knife for the kitchen. Honesuki knife: With its triangular blade, the honesuki is used for boning poultry, but it also excels at other meat-trimming tasks, such as frenching a rack of lamb. Japanese san mai construction features carbon steel between two layers of stainless steel, providing the ultra-sharpness of carbon steel with the easier maintenance and added corrosion resistance of stainless steel. Blue steel, hardened to 61 Rockwell, is a super-hard, fine-grained carbon steel known for taking and maintaining an extremely sharp edge (?blue? refers to the paper the raw steel comes wrapped in). Mirror-polished blades have a bead-blasted edge where the two steels meet, showcasing the layered construction. Traditional Japanese hexagonal handles are made of gray PakkaWood.
