Housed within a beautiful gift box, this set of four Shun Classic 4.5 Ultimate Steak Knives is an ideal accessory for family meals and light entertaining. With low-frequency serrations and a 16 blade angle, this innovative blade design prevents tearing and shredding and allows a juicy steak to retain more of its flavor that might otherwise leak out as is the case with a standard serrated blade. Slice filet mignon, veal and pork cutlets, roast beef and other meats more cleanly and beautifully, time and time again, with this unique blade that retains its edge longer than a straight fine-edge knife.
Beginning with an extraordinarily hard core of VG10 steel and reinforced with sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side for a total of 32 layers of supporting SUS410/SUS431 steel, Shun Classic blades are crafted using the Kasumi method of knife-making. This technique produces a superbly strong and sharp edge and allows the blade to slice and glide more easily through foods during use. It also leaves an mesmerizing rippled effect across the blade known as suminigashi or ink pattern. The blades of the Shun Classic 4 Piece Ultimate Steak Knife Set feature razor-sharp edges and full tangs, each delivering splendid strength and balance in addition to optimal performance and marked edge retention.
Shun s Pakkawood combines the natural beauty of wood with the strength of polymer plastic into ebony-black, resin-treated hardwood handles that please the eye as readily as they deliver superior durability. Sanded and buffed to a glossy surface, the handle offers moisture resistance while the unusual D-shape provides a comfortable and secure grip within your hand. Shun Classic cutlery retains their edges longer if hand-washed.
