Every knife in all Classic Shun Knife Sets are made in Japan by Shun following the Kasumi method of knife making. Shun Classic Knives are made in Seki city Japan by Shun and features the high standard (typical of all shun knife sets) VG-10 stainless steel blade with 32 layers (16 on each side) of stainless alloy.
Each of the Shun Classic Knives has a one-piece stainless steel bolster, tang and end cap (which basically means the steel runs the whole way through the knife- no cheap handles to snap off) and come with a lifetime warranty. Shun Classic Knives are made with a black PakkaWood (composite hardwood) handle.
Review Shun Classic 7 Piece Essential Block Set
- Good Points Very good product. Shun Classic Knives really are very good. The blades have a beautiful Damascus look which stops food from sticking to the blade. The PakkaWood handle – is amazing, comfortable and Shun knives are well balanced. These knives are made by the yasumi method of folding steel – the same method used to make samurai swords. Made from SUS419 high- carbon stainless steel. In a word – Amazing.
- Bad Points – Shun Classic Knives are especially designed for the user and come in either left hand or right hand – you cannot buy one knife for several people to use. They cost a lot – but are excellent knives
