The Shun Sora 2-Piece Knife Set in a gift box is the perfect starter set of knives for the novice, or will be appreciated by the culinary professional knife and cutlery enthusiast. Paring and coring is made easy with the Shun Sora 3.5-inch paring knife. Perfect for delicate garnishing or intricate knife work, the paring knife is a must-have for any kitchen. The 6-Inch Chef's knife is a great all-purpose knife for kitchen prep. With its smaller size, you'll find that it's more agile and maneuverable, while the curved belly allows you to gently rock through herbs and spices to create a fine mince. Sora, in Japanese, means "sky". Let your imagination take you-the sky's the limit with what you can do with your Shun Sora Knives. Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed-on the edge. These knives boast a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle on each side of the blade. Laser-cut, 2-sections are fit together and braze welded to permanently join them. Blade shapes and handles are designed as traditional Japanese knives, while the beautiful wavy pattern on each blade is reminiscent of Japanese sword hamon lines. Each handle is made with a textured PP/TPE polymer that provides balance and is easy to maintain. A contemporary look, secure grip and balance and is easy to maintain. A stunning Shun knife at an incredible price point; you can afford to have one in every style.

Some people say they got rust spots on these knives. Well more expensive knives have a good side and a bad side. They are great because you get better blade profiles, with a blade that holds an edge a lot longer and is much easier to sharpen, but the down side is they are prone to rust. You shouldn't just leave these knives laying in a wet sink for days like you can do with cheaper knives. You should do that with any higher end knife because they will all get rust spots. Also I can not stress this enough. Do not put these knives in the dishwasher. When you finish using them. Hand wash them in soap and water. Hand dry them really good and put them back on your knife rack. Also make sure you knife isn't wet from placing wet knives on it. Putting your good knives on a wet knife rack is a good way to get rust spots. These really are great knives that are very easy to take care of with a little respect and a few steps, and these are possibly the best knives in the price range. These or the Messermeister Elites. Though the elites are a little more expensive than these. You will not regret buying these Soras'. Also if you purchase these. Get yourself a nice knife rack to display them. The beautifully crafted knives look way to go to be thrown in a knife block or drawer.
The pairing knife got me good on it's first use. Slit my thumb open almost to the bone. I wasn't really paying much attention and I felt the cut but it didn't hurt. Look down and blood was everywhere! That's how sharp these are.
Great knives! I would also recommend getting some blade covers when they aren't in use.
Just FYI, the 6-inch chef knife may be more appropriate for the smaller/average sized cook. I bought these knives as a gift for my boyfriend, as a starter set for his new home. But it turns out that the 6-inch chef knife has a heel that is too small for him to comfortably place his fingers on. He is around 6'1" and has larger hands, so I don't think the blade is too small, moreso that he is a tad too big. I did end up returning the set to purchase the 8-inch Sora chef knife for him, which fits perfectly in his hands.
