Boxed set of chefs knives

High quality knives make all the difference in the world. This set of Shun Classic knives would be a great starter set for the culinary student.

Shun knives are especially sharp due to the angle of the cutting surface. The cutting edge is ground to an angle of 16 degrees, whereas most German knives only use 22 degrees. The Japanese steel also allows the knives to hold their edge longer.

Shun Classic 3-Piece Boxed Flat Set

  • Gift box with 8-inch chef’s knife, 6-inch utility knife, and 3-1/2-inch paring knife
  • VG-10 high-carbon stainless-steel blades with 16 layers of stainless alloy for Damascus clad appearance
  • Stainless-steel end caps and traditional ergonomic offset bolsters
  • Black laminated PakkaWood handles designed for maximum comfort
  • Made in Japan; lifetime warranty

Here’s a great review for these knives.

The best knives I’ve ever owned, bar none. They come with a razor edge and are easy to re-hone with just a few strokes on the Kershaw-Shun steel (well worth purchasing to accompany this set). The damascus pattern and perfectly crafted profile slice through darn near anything (food-like anyway) with ease. I also got a 9″ scalloped slicing knife and sharpening steel to round out the set. The weight and balance are perfect. They are designed for right-handed chefs with a d-shaped handle so if you are a leftie they may not be as comfortable or easy to use.
