Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. In the great tradition of Seki City, Japan’s sword and knife making center, every knife is handmade by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Every day, the legacy of ancient sword smiths serves as inspiration to the artisans in the Kai factories. Kai’s 100-year-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.

The Shun Classic 4-Piece Student Set includes the Shun Classic 8" Chef’s Knife, the 3-1/2" Paring Knife, the 6" Utility Knife, and a sturdy 8-Slot Shun Knife Roll for carrying them to and from class. The handsome nylon knife roll is embroidered with the Shun logo and includes space for up to eight knives. It folds up compactly for easy carrying.

Shun Classic 8" Chef Knife
If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Classic 8" Chef’s Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef’s knife can be gently “rocked” through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic’s thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef’s Knives.

The Shun Classic 8" Chef’s Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. 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. Shun’s proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant knives that are beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

Shun Classic 3-1/2" Paring Knife
The Shun Classic Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the Chef’s Knife because, like the Chef’s Knife, the Paring Knife is quite versatile. The Paring Knife gets its name from its main function – removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It’s ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you’ll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.

Shun Classic 6" Utility Knife
In size, the Shun Classic 6" Utility Knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It’s perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, and then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.
