|The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles, yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance to make your kitchen and food prep experiences much better.|
Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. Blades are 32 layers (16 per side) stainless Damascus cladding.
Each blade is hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (32° comprehensive). The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
This set includes:
Classic 9" Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife DM0720 - Hollow-ground indentation help slices release from the blade
Classic 10" Chef's Knife DM0707 - The longer blade provides additional cutting leverage and is especially handy when it comes to cutting larger foods
