Michel Bras 7-Piece Knife Set

Renowned French chef Michel Bras collaborated with Kai, the producer of Shun knives, to bring together the best traditions of French and Japanese cutlery. Made in Japan, these knives feature razor-sharp stainless-steel blades tightly joined to comfortable PakkaWood handles. All knives are hand assembled to exacting specifications. Matte-finish blades is composed of three stainless-steel layers: a hardened VG-10 core sandwiched between two layers of more flexible steel for increased durability and resistance. Blades are coated in titanium to enhance their antioxidation properties. Each blade is etched with a unique serial number and Bras's signature emblem of cistre, the delicate Alpine fennel that grows in the hills above his Aubrac restaurant. For quick identification, each handle is inscribed with the knife item number (1-7), signifying the blade's form and function. Black PakkaWood handles are designed in the traditional Japanese chestnut shape, to sit comfortably in the hand. Storage block sold separately. 7-Piece Set includes: 3" sheep's-foot paring knife (#1). 4" steak knife (#7). 6" utility knife (#2). 6 1/4", 8 3/4" and 10 1/2" santokus (#4, #5 and #6). 9" hollow-ground slicing knife (#3).

Over priced Shun Classic cutlery?
June 18, 2015
First these MASSIVE. You must have large hands to use this. I'm surprised Shun even tolerated this kind of alliance.
If you have large enough hands to weld this, the finish (if you like this), will not last. I expect my knives to look brilliant from day one to day N+1 where N is as long as I have been alive (and always holding true).
Cons: Quality, Size, Sharpness

My wife's favorite knife set
November 27, 2014
I bought the 7 piece knife set for my wife 2 years ago. She loved them...... she uses them every single day and still very sharp. They are light, sharp, and easy to grip which makes things easier for her to work around in the kitchen. My wife and I would definitely recommend this product.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
