Shun pronounced "shoon" in Japanese, means- "at the peak of perfection". Each knife is handmade by skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete one knife. Shun Classic knives feature a VG-10 super steel core encased with 32-layers of Damascus stainless steel (16-layers on each side). The Damascus steel supports and protects the core, which provides toughness, and is stain resistant. Each Shun knife provides a Japanese blade angle of 16°. You will enjoy the ease of cutting the thinnest slices without bruising or tearing the most delicate foods while prepping; this ensures the ingredients to stay intact, retain flavor, and stay fresh. The blade is complimented by a D-shaped traditional Japanese handle, made out of ebony PakkaWood. Shun offers a full assortment, so you will always find the right knife for the task. Made in Japan; Lifetime Warranty. Handwashing is recommended.
The Shun Bamboo 14-inch Round Cutting Board is made from end grain bamboo. Bamboo is desired for its extreme durability and natural beauty, ideal cutting surface and does not dull knife blades. This superior cutting board is 16% harder that maple, allowing for less cutting marks. It is easy to clean, by wiping with a damp cloth. Plus, its natural hardness means it resists knife marks and retains its handsome appearance even under consistent use. Along with the hard surface, bamboo doesn't absorb moisture, ensuring that your board will maintain its shape. Not only is bamboo an ideal working surface for cutting, it's a safe and ecological choice. Bamboo is a grass, not a wood that grows quickly and replenishes itself.
