Product Description

This high-utility, high-quality cutlery set comes gift boxed with an 8-inch chef's knife, 6-inch utility knife, and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife. Made in Japan, the knives feature VG-10 high-carbon stainless-steel blades with 16 layers of stainless alloy for their Damascus clad appearance. A beautiful line of cutlery, this pattern features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without rusting problems. The blade profile of these knives reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut, as well as faster prep times. Stainless-steel end caps and traditional ergonomic offset bolsters add to their utility, and black laminated PakkaWood handles give the knives maximum user comfort. Handwashing provides best care and the set comes backed by a lifetime warranty.

From the Manufacturer

Shun Classic Cutlery

Why Buy Shun Classic:

Born of the ancient samurai-sword-making tradition and hand-finished for precision and beauty, Shun Classic is an ideal choice for anyone buying their first Japanese knife or 50th. The high-quality line of cutlery makes a worthwhile addition to any chef's arsenal of tools--it's used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Produced in the widest variety of specialized styles, the Classic line features both traditional European blade shapes and innovative cutting-edge designs.

Shun Classic's amazingly sharp blade is famous for both edge retention and ease of sharpening. Each blade has a core of VG-10 "Super Steel" with a Pattern Damascus cladding of 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel--16 layers on either side. While the wood grain pattern enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.

NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.

Detailed Features

  • Blade core consists of high-carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years.
  • Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box. This is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20-22 degrees.
  • Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain.
  • Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing.
  • D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping the knife's handle secure in the hand during use.
  • Available standard in D-shaped handle styles or by special order in reverse D-shaped handle styles.
  • Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens.
  • Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing.
  • Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer.
  • Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty.

I found these knives to be extremely sharp out of the box.
Amazon Customer
Hone these knives every so often and sharpen once a year(using wet stone), and this will be the best knife investment you ever made.

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.

I purchased a set of these for my brother and sister-in-law last year for their wedding and almost kept them for myself. They raved about the quality of the set so I finally purchased my own and can say without a doubt that these are the finest made knives that I have ever owned. One word of warning, these are sharp! I was a little too eager when I was unpacking the knives and cut my hand wide open. Three stitches later, I was prepping my dinner. Great cuts, well balanced, and beautiful to look at.

I have a set for myself had them for 3 years now. They only need to be sharpened once a year and the company will put a factory edge back on it for free, just have to ship them to them. If anyone is looking for a set of knives these are the ones you buy once and never have to buy another set in your life.

I originally thought about getting a full set with a cutting block, but at the end of the day these three are sufficient for my daily use. The key is that they are very sharp and provide a firm grip. The box is nice, but it's not for storing the knives after use. I ended up getting a few plastic knife covers to protect these knives from damage and accidents.

Had a hard time deciding to spend so much money. Glad I did. Have purchased several more. Don't expect to ever use anything else. Buy them you'll be glad you did.

First off, let me clarify that I have knife skill training and I am coming to this review from the professional space. I have owned this set for about 3 years now.

Generally I love Japanese knives for their sharpness. They are made in different forging method than European style knives. The metal treatment and its carbon contents are different and with it you can expect a different elasticity profile and different susceptibility to rust and chipping. These knives have a blade angle which is far sharper than what you would find at your regular European style knives. As prescribed, these should NEVER go into the dishwasher and should be cleaned and wiped dry promptly after use. (Not only for the blade's sake but also for the wood handle!)

Initially they are deadly-sharp, accurate and a pleasure to work with. If you don't fillet your own fingers, you would be delighted to find out how easily they can make a paper-thin carpaccio out of everything you throw at them. Unfortunately, this unique construction also means that they become dull much faster than normal (European style) knives. In short time they also get microscopic chipping along the blade edge (like a used shaving blade), which further disrupt their abilities. In between uses I sharpen with Shun steel to help them recover some of their sharpness temporarily. Unfortunately there is so much chipping damage to the edge every 3-6 months that they go through professional sharpening (for me at least, I do cook a lot).

Sharpening costs aside, the real problem here is that due to their unusual blade angle (I think it's 16°) they cannot be sharpened like a European knife.

Love this set of knives! They are wonderful to use and I really like the handle and weight of the knives. But beware, they are very very sharp!! This is the best set of knives we have ever had. Highly recommended.
