These western-style knives from our Shun Reserve collection are as beautiful to behold as they are a pleasure to use. Striking in their design, the colorful charcoal-and-crimson PakkaWood handles are contoured for comfort and embellished with an inlaid mosaic crest. Handcrafted in the style of western cutlery, the knife has a fully forged blade that provides added balance when making precision cuts. Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword-making techniques, the blades' core of SG2 powdered steel has a superfine, even grain capable of being forged into an ultrathin yet extremely strong, exquisitely sharp blade. Blades clad in a true 32-layer Damascus of forged nickel and stainless steel help food release from the blade. Blades have a Japanese-style 16-degree cutting angle. Full-tang construction and a riveted handle made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused polished PakkaWood offer comfort and control. These NSF-certified knives meet the high-level standards of professional kitchens. Sturdy, bamboo 9-slot knife block is elegantly finished in a dark stain. All knives are handcrafted in Japan; block is made in China. 6-Piece Set includes: 3 1/2" paring knife. 8" chef's knife. 9" bread knife. 10" hollow-ground slicing knife. Honing steel. 9-slot knife block.
