Packaged within a beautiful gift box, this set of four Shun Classic 5" Steak Knives offers an indispensable accessory set for family meals and light entertaining. Offering a formidably sharp, straight edge, these knives slice through steak easily and cleanly, gliding with ease and without serrations. These fine blades belong next to any classic steak dinner, filet mignon, veal or pork chops, prime rib, and all sorts of other meats.
Created using the traditional Japanese Kasumi knife making method, Shun Premier blades require more than one hundred hand-crafted steps from start to finish, resulting in a striking appearance that evokes images of the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. These blades each boast a total of thirty-two layers of Damascus cladding - sixteen layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel on each side - supporting their high-performance, stain-resistant VG10 cores. Every finished edge offers a double bevel for flawless stability and precision. The hammered tsuchime finish of these blades function like hollow ground indentations: They prevent food from sticking to the blade by reducing friction while being used. Shun Premier blades provide a full tang and razor-sharp edge for matchless strength and balance in addition to unsurpassed performance and edge retention.
The contoured handles of the Shun Premier line deliver a comfortable left- or right-handed grip, and are crafted from walnut Pakkawood, Comprised of resin-treated wood, Shun's Pakkawood merges the stunning natural beauty of wood with the durability and moisture resistance of polymer plastic. These fine blades exhibit unsurpassed beauty and balance, and are finished with the Shun logo etched into each handle's end. Hand-washing is recommended.
