Shun Premier 6 Piece Basic Block Set
While the word "basic" seems out of place near any Shun knife set, in this one case, it's appropriate. That's because the Shun Premier 6 Piece Basic Block Set is offered as a foundational starting point that you can build on over time. It has the most important tools, to get you started off right, and for a lifetime of fine cooking. The set includes the Shun Premier 4" Paring; 6.5" Serrated Utility; and 8" Chef's Knife, plus a very handy set of Premier Precision Shears, the awesome 9" Premiere Combination Steel, and a top-quality hard-laminated 11-slot Bamboo Block. Each Premier Series knife is a fully forged marvel, with Shun's legendary VG-MAX carbon steel at it's core. Blades are wrapped in 34 micro-layers of supporting stainless steel, a beautiful and drag-reducing tsuchime finish is applied and 16° dual-bevel edges are shaped and polished by hand. Shun Premier Cutlery also features full tangs, stainless steel bolster and end caps for exceptional balance, and elegant D-shaped walnut Pakkawood® handles. The matching Combination Honing Steel features two unique surfaces for day-to-day honing and a micro-ribbed side for weekly honing. And of course, the 11-slot Bamboo Block leaves plenty of storage space for a variety of knife profiles. The Shun Premier 6 Piece Basic Block Set makes a great beginning for a lifetime of cooking.
