Shun Kaji 11-Piece Knife Block Set

For ambitious cooks, this set makes an excellent introduction to the Kaji cutlery series developed exclusively for us by Shun. The process of forging the blades combines ancient Damascus and clad construction techniques. 65-layer blade features a premium SG-2 powdered steel cutting core clad in 64 layers of forged nickel/stainless steel Damascus. Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword-making techniques, the blades' construction creates a supersharp cutting edge. Handles are made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control. These NSF-certified knives meet the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. Cherrywood storage block has 22 slots. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. 11-Piece Set includes: 3 1/2" and 4 1/2" paring knives. 6" boning knife. 6" serrated utility knife. 6" and 8" chef's knives. 7" hollow-ground santoku. 9" bread knife. 9 1/2" hollow-ground slicing knife. 9" honing steel. 22-slot storage block. Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Fantastic set of knives!

Probably the best set of knives you will ever own! I researched for months, until I came down to two top brands. I headed to Williams-Sonoma for some expert advice. As soon as I held the Shun in my hand, I knew this was it! The handle grip is quite comfortable. A beautiful set of knives. Received quite a few compliments at Thanksgiving. Shun Kaji certainly rates 5 stars for excellence!
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Sharpness, Weight
