Shun classics are the origiginal Shuns, the first Japanese-style knives to be made available to a wider audience in North America. Instead of heavy, ponderous blades, Shun Classic blades are lighter with razor-sharp edges and crafted from advanced steel. Rather than weight, Western handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.
The Shun Classic 4-Piece Student Set includes the Shun Classic 8-in. Chef's Knife, the 3.5-in. Paring Knife, the 6-in. Utility Knife, and a sturdy 8-Slot Shun Knife Roll for carrying them to and from class. The handsome nylon knife roll is embroidered with the Shun logo and includes space for up to eight knives. It folds up compactly for easy carrying.
Propriertary VG-MAX cutting core. This high-end stainless steel forms the core of the entire blade, all the way to the cutting edge. VG-Max is extremely hard, which means Shun Classics can take an incredible edge and hold it longer.
Stainless Damascus Cladding - 34 micro-layers of steel on each side support the core, add stain / corrosion resistance and help food release from the blade.
Razor-sharp hand sharpened 16° angle cutting edge on each side for top performance; blade is double-bevel, flat ground for easy cutting and food release.
PakkaWood - Premium, resin-impregnated hardwood resists moisture and is strong and durable.
Asymmetrical - Traditional Japanese D-Shaped handle nestles into the curve of the right hand.
