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. 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 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.

What's the fuss?
November 1, 2015
They're fine. I have Wustoff in NY in a Globel knife stand and I like those better. I have a variety of individual knives from other manufacturers which I hand picked for different purposes. I've kept this knife set in my second home. My only complaint is that they don't clean well. They get discolored and maintain water stains. I've tried a variety of cleaning techniques and products but nothing works.

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.
