Shun Classic 3-Piece Knife Starter Set

Produced by Japan's leading blade manufacturer, Shun knives reflect the craftsmanship of a centuries-old tradition of Japanese knife making. This set brings together a trio of essential knives. Set includes a 3 1/2" paring knife, a 6" serrated utility knife and an 8" chef's knife. VG-MAX "super steel" blades are clad on each side with 69 microthin layers of stainless steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade. Exceedingly sharp cutting edges are long lasting and easy to maintain. Durable PakkaWood handles resist moisture and have a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand. Handcrafted in Japan.

Excellent Knife Upgrade
January 12, 2014
Finally upgraded my 25 yr old Sabatier kitchen knives. After much research, I went with the Shun Classic set. I tend to use the "essentials" for almost all tasks, so this 3-piece set was perfect. I find the Shun knives are sharper and thinner than what I was used to using. They are very well-balanced and most important, the handles feel great in my hand. Although the steel is harder and slightly more fragile than what I was used to, I've had no problems at all with chipping or corrosion. I also purchased the Shun knife tray for safe storage in a drawer under my cutting block. The build quality is excellent and I now have more counter space.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the Shun knives and highly recommend this set for anyone looking to upgrade or just get started in the kitchen.
Pros: Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Weight
