Shun Whetstone Sharpening, 3-Pieces Shun Sora 3-Piece Build-a-Block Knife Set Shun Classic 3-Piece Build-a-Block Knife Set
The Shun 3-Piece Sharpening System is the easy way to learn how to sharpen your knives yourself using a whetstone. Because of the slant of the bamboo stand, all you need to do to ensure your knife is at the proper angle when sharpening is to keep the blade flat and parallel to the working surface as you pull it across the stone. Once you’ve sharpened your knife, you can maintain the edge for a longer period of time by honing regularly. The included honing steel can be used in the stand or on its own. Shun Sora line that provides exceptional handcrafted Shun quality at an amazing price. Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed—on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. While Sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the textured PP/TPE polymer blend handle material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain. Shun Classics are the original Shuns, the first Japanese-style knives to be made available to a wider audience in North America. Instead of heavy, ponderous blades, Shun Classic blades are lighter with razor-sharp edges and crafted from advanced steel. Rather than weighty, Western handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.

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.

Each Shun knife gets its unique and individual character by refining the natural beauty of the damask grain. This way every Shun knife is unmistakable and unique – a piece of art, united by craftsmanship, technology and design.
Shun Premier 3-Piece Build-a-Block Set Knife Shun Shima 4pc Steak set - Four, 5-in steak knives in a boxed set Shun Classic 2 Pc Carving Set
Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique.

The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.

Shun named its Shima Steak Knife Set for Tokyo’s famous Shima Steakhouse, where diners from all over the world enjoy some of the world’s finest beef. Inspired by Shima, Shun created a steak knife that can make even the world’s best steak taste better. Here’s why the right steak knife makes a difference:

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 exactly where they belong—in the steak.

Shima’s long five-inch blade with its slight recurve is designed for easy, one-pass slicing. Place Shima’s blade flat against any surface and you’ll see that the blade only touches the surface near the tip and at the heel. The rest of the blade is curved slightly inward. This shape is designed to ensure a smooth slice, whether pushing the blade forward or pulling it back. With the recurve, you start the slice at the front of the blade and push forward or pull back through the entire length of the blade. The edge contacts the meat at a slight angle and has a smaller point of initial contact, making it much easier to slice the food—without the resistance and “crushing” experienced with a blade that doesn’t have the recurve. The Shima’s recurved blade is also useful when cutting on a plate that has a lip. The shape enables the user to continue their slice all the way to the edge of the plate.

Shima’s full-tang construction makes it an exceptionally well-balanced knife. The handle is slim, contoured to fit the hand, and tapers as it nears the blade. This enables a slight pinch grip for comfortable control. The slim, flat handle provides lateral stability, ensuring that the knife won’t rotate or twist in your hand. The combination of the slim handle and gentle contouring provides easy, nearly effortless control while dining. The PakkaWood handle scales, made of genuine hardwood and impregnated with resin, are beautiful, water resistant, and won’t harbor bacteria. As a finishing touch, Shima handles are decorated with inlaid steel rondels.

Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy. It means simplicity, but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. In Kanso concept development, all that doesn't matter was left out and kept everything that does: high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control.
The steel is Japanese AUS10A highly refined, high-carbon, vanadium stainless steel that takes a razor-sharp edge and holds it longer.
Kanso's Heritage finish hides scratches and gives Kanso a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of a wood called tagayasan or wenge, which is sometimes known in Japan as "iron sword wood".
The handle contouring enables an easy chef's grip. Full-tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control.
Like all Shun knives, Kanso is sharpened to a 16° cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food freshness and best taste.
