The Shun Classic 5-Piece Starter Block set includes three of the most essential Shun knives, plus the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel and a beautiful 6-slot Slimline Block. You'll get the 8-in. Chef's Knife, the 3.5-in. Paring Knife, and the 6-in. Utility Knife. With these three elegant Shun Classic knives in your block, you'll be able to handle almost any kitchen tasks. Regular honing with the included Shun Honing Steel helps maintain your edge and prolongs the time between sharpenings. The bamboo block will look beautiful on your counter and you'll also appreciate its easy-care performance. Since bamboo absorbs very little moisture, it doesn’t shrink or swell like other hardwoods, making it ideal for kitchen accessories. Even with all this, you'll have room for an additional Shun knife and a pair of Kitchen or Herb Shears in your Shun Bamboo Block.
The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
