Shun Classic 5 Piece Knife Block Set
The Shun Classic 5 Piece Block Set is among the best collections you could hope to begin with, and it's an especially great value when priced anywhere under $325. Shun's Classic Line fuses the uncompromising performance of premium carbon steel with the resiliance and practical ease of high-carbon stainless steel. The result, simply put, is a masterpiece. Shun Classic knives are perfect for pros and serious home cooks who want next-level performance, without the added maintenance of full carbon steel cutlery.
This starter set comes with the most important pieces- the ones you should invest in and use for a lifetime. Knives include the 8" Chef's Knife, 3.5" Paring Knife and 6" Utility Knife. This versatile trio can handle a very wide variety of prep, and together make a very competent core set that can be added to over time. The set also includes Shun's Combination Honing Steel (one of the best and most user-friendly steels on the market) to keep your edges keen. Of course, you can also take advantage of Shun's free lifetime sharpening to restore the factory edge when needed. And lastly, the space-saving bamboo SlimLine storage block that easily finds room on any countertop. This branded block will hold all three knives and steel, plus it has an extra slot for a future knife (perhaps a bread knife or santoku?) and a slot that will accommodate most brands of kitchen shears. The Shun Classic 5 Piece Block Set is forged in Japan and backed by a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty.
