Shun Kaji 19-Piece Knife Block Set

Named for the blacksmith's forge, the Kaji series was developed by Shun's master knife makers exclusively for Williams-Sonoma. Combining ancient Damascus-steel and clad-construction techniques, this set includes a wide range of superb cutlery in the essential sizes. Blades are constructed with a core of SG-2 powdered steel clad in a true Damascus layer of forged nickel and stainless steel. 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. Bamboo storage block has slots for 20 pieces. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. 19-Piece Set Includes: 3 1/2" and 4 1/2" paring knives. 6" serrated utility knife. 6" boning knife. 6", 8" and 10" chef's knives. 7" santoku. 7" Chinese vegetable cleaver. 9" hollow-ground slicing knife. 9" bread knife. Six 5" steak knives. 9" honing steel. 20-slot storage block. Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Shun Kaji makes me happy!
July 24, 2012
I have purchased a few pieces of the Shun Kaji Knives individually in the past, but this set has been on my wish list for a very long time. I was surprised to see the set on sale and I really debated for a while before I decided to bite the bullet. I am so glad I did. The bamboo block is so sleek and elegant. It looks amazing on my counter top. Now my knives are in easy reach. The quality is far superior to any other knife I have tried in the past. The only glitch is that they sent two slicing knives and no bread knife. No worries though. WS is on top of things and they will swap out the extra slicing knife and send the bread knife. Thank you Shun Kaji and thank you WS.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Size, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape

Shun Kaji knives
June 6, 2011
The finest knives in the world. Lifetime warranty, perfectly balanced and an edge that does not dull. I've had my Shun knives for 2 years and only a quick brush of the steel is required to get a razor edge.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight

Amazing Knives
March 28, 2011
This set of Shun Kaji knives is not only great looking, but so functional! The knives are extremely sharp, and the handles are beautifully crafted. The weight in your hand is just perfectly balanced, and I hope to have many many years of use!
I received a tip to use the sharpener after each extensive use to prolong the sharpness of the blades. I plan on doing so!
Wonderful purchase and worth waiting for.

Sooo Sharp

Love these knives and how they handle and feel. They hold such a great edge that cutting anything is a snap... and feel so right to hold. They are expensive but will last a lifetime I am sure...
