Tokyo’s renowned Shima Steakhouse serves some of the world’s finest beef. Shun named our beautiful Shima Natural Steak Knife Set in honor of this famous steakhouse—and because we believe that the right steak knife can make even the world’s finest steak taste even better. Much of the delicious flavor in steak is contained in its juices, which are held inside by the fibers of the meat. Cutting with Shima’s razor-sharp 16 edge means that far fewer meat fibers are cut with each slice, so that more of the juices and more of the flavor remain in the steak. These lightweight steak knives feature beautiful tagayasan (wenge) wood handles and offer easy, comfortable cutting control.
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.
