This Shun 2-Piece Classic Knife Set features two of our most popular Shun Classic knives: Our 4-inch Paring Knife and 5.5-inch Santoku Knife. The Shun Classic Paring Knife is beautiful at paring, coring and detail work such as garnishing, while the Shun Classic Santoku Knife is ideal for slicing, dicing and mincing. All Shun Classic Knife blade cores consists of high-carbon VG-MAX, 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. Each blade is clad with 34 layers each side (68 total) stainless Damascus for strength and flexibility. Blades are 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. Blades boast a Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61, ensuring that they take and hold their incredibly sharp edge longer. The D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping handles secure in the hand during use. The Pakkawood handles, are resin-impregnated for added strength and moisture resistance and are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens. Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of Samurai Sword manufacturing. Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty.

I have these two and the 8" chef knife, and they're sharp enough to easily cut through an entire watermelon with little effort. NEVER any sawing required - nice, smooth, clean cuts. The 8" was my first purchase, and it took almost 2 years of semi-light use (2-3 times a week?) to need sharpening.
