Shun Edo 9-Piece Knife Block Set

Shun Edo's reputation for superior power and control is reflected in the extraordinary appearance of their cutlery. The VG-10 "super steel" blade's eye-catching hammered pattern reduces drag and helps food release easily, and the handle's tear-drop shape and broad bolster facilitate a variety of cutting techniques. Wide bolsters and ergonomic grips reduce tension and fatigue while providing added leverage. Incredibly dense VG-10 "Super Steel" blade is tempered for exceptional hardness and edge retention. The hammered pattern ("tsuchime" in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking. Handle is made from resin-infused PakkaWood for lasting moisture resistance. Shun's knife-making technique draws upon the traditions of Japanese sword-making while employing state-of-the-art technology. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level hygiene standards of commercial kitchens. Bamboo storage block has slots for 11 pieces. Handcrafted in Japan. Set includes: 4" paring. 5 1/2" utility. 8 1/4" dual density utility. 8" chef's knife. 9 3/4" slicing. 6" boning. 9" honing steel. Kitchen shears Edo storage block.

So comfortable...
May 15, 2012
We bought the knives about 2 months ago. We like to think of ourselves as pretty intense home cooks. We absolutely love these knives. I steel them about once a week and have yet to need to sharpen them. We did our homework on which knife brand would fit for what we wanted and Shun was the winner by quite a large margin. The hardness of the knife keeps an edge for a long time but is(as we have been told) incredibly hard to sharpen. I will be sending them out to have this done. But from the chefs that use Shun, some only sharpen them once or twice a year with proper care. The handles on the Edo's are so comfortable when you are doing lot's of prep. I have always enjoyed prep, but these knives make it that much better. Worth every penny! However, I would not recommend these to someone who doesn't wash immediatly after use. With any expensive knife, they required to be cared after very carefully.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Versatile, Sharpness, Weight
