This beautiful set has six Shun Classic Steak Knives, perfect for your next dinner party or cookout. Did you know that the right steak knife can make a good steak taste even better? The key is in keeping more of the flavorful juices inside the steak. A razor-sharp knife, like the Shun Classic Steak Knife, will glide through the meat, cutting fewer of the capillaries in the steak and keeping more of the flavor inside, where it belongs. This set of four beautiful Shun Classic Steak Knives are a perfect five-inch length; long enough to handle even the largest steak, yet short enough to provide excellent cutting control. This four-piece set is ideal for a small dinner party. The Shun Classic 6-Piece Steak Knife Set comes in an elegant bamboo box, perfect for gift giving or storage.
Shun's Classic Series offers the widest assortment of traditional Japanese and European blade shapes and contemporary designs. At first glance, you'll notice instantly the beautiful waved pattern on the blade which resembles a combination of tree-rings and ripples in water. This form of Kasumi-style knife making similar to pattern Damascus, or in Japanese suminigashi ("ink pattern"), is not only visually appealing but actually allows the blade to slide through food easier. This variation of pattern Damascus is formed by folding, welding, grinding, and polishing 32 layers (16 per side) of softer steel (SUS410/SUS431) that protect and support the VG-10 stainless steel core. The D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handle fits perfectly in the hand and stabilizes the blade to prevent turning.
Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "Shoon") have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
