Shun Premier 9-Piece Knife Block Set

The Shun Premier collection is distinguished by hand-hammered blades and walnut-colored PakkaWood handles that evoke the artistry of traditional hand-forged knives. Hand-crafted in Japan, the blades are thin and lightweight. This 9-Piece block set equips you with all the most popular cutlery pieces for everyday meals and entertaining. Blades feature a core of VG-MAX "super steel" clad on each side with 69 microthin layers of stainless-steel. The striking hand-hammered finish (tsuchime in Japanese) reduces drag when cutting and helps to quickly release food from the blade. Walnut-finish PakkaWood handles have a two-position design, providing a trigger grip for pull cuts and the perfect balance point for a pinch grip. Stainless-steel end caps embossed with the Shun logo add stability, strength and wide weight distribution from end to end. 9-Piece Set includes: 3" vegetable knife. 4" paring knife. 6 1/2" utility knife. 8" chef's knife. 9" bread knife. 9 1/2" slicing knife. Honing steel. Kitchen shears. 11-slot bamboo block. Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Beautiful Knives
February 10, 2016
Very beautiful knives! They are very sharp and excellent quality. My only complaint is they are so finely made if you drop them the tip brakes off. Three of mine have broken tips but I like them so much I just ordered three more. I will be more careful this time around!
