Comprised of a 9" Slicing Knife and a 6.5" Carving Fork, the Shun Premier 2 Piece Carving Set provides the perfect complement to any holiday celebration or large family dinner with roast as its focal point. Carving and slicing tasks become a joyful occasion with the Shun Premier 9" Slicing Knife in one hand and the Shun Premier 6.5" Carving Fork in the other. With 9-inches of long, thin blade, you'll slice cleanly and precisely with confidence, whether serving up paper thin slices or thick and juicy chunks with more flavorful drippings staying in the meat where they belong. The tines of the carving fork provide a secure grip and a sharp pierce while slicing and serving. The prongs prove helpful in testing to see if the roast is done, as well as for transporting roasts from pan to plate. Use this fine set on roast beef, turkey, chicken, duck, and even salmon. Stored within an attractive bamboo presentation box when not in use, this 2 piece carving set makes a marvelous gift for any chef who loves a good roast.
Created using Japanese Kasumi knife making techniques, Shun Premier blades require more than one hundred hand-crafted steps from start to finish and their striking appearance evokes images of the handcrafted knives of ancient Japan. Each blade offers a total of thirty-two layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel - sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side - supporting the high-performance, stain-resistant VG10 core within. The edge is then finished with a double bevel for flawless stability and precision. The hammered tsuchime finish of the blade acts like hollow ground indentations, preventing food from sticking to the blade and reducing friction while being used. Shun Premier cutlery includes a full tang and a razor-sharp edge for exceptional strength and balance as well as impressive performance and edge retention.
Crafted from walnut Pakkawood, the contoured handles deliver a comfortable left- or right-handed grip. Shun's Pakkawood consists of resin-treated wood, merging the stunning natural beauty of wood with the durability and moisture resistance of polymer plastic. Each Shun Premier piece offers unsurpassed beauty and balance with the Shun logo etched into the handle's end. The Shun Premier 2 Piece Carving Set is best if hand-washed.
