Build your very own Shun Classic block set. Included is a Shun Classic 8" Chef's Knife, 9" Combination Honing Steel and 6 Slot Slimline Bamboo Knife Block. The Chef's Knife is the one kitchen knife you can't do without and the honing steel helps maintain your razor-sharp edge, so Shun included both with this starter set. But you'll still have four open slots to fill with the Shun Classic knives that you most want and need for your own personal style of cooking.

Made of durable, lightweight, and very renewable bamboo, the bamboo block will look beautiful on your kitchen counter and it's slimline design takes up less space on your countertop. You'll also appreciate its easy-care performance. Since bamboo absorbs very little moisture, it doesn't shrink or swell like other hardwoods, making it ideal for kitchen accessories. The Shun Classic 3 Piece Set also makes a wonderful gift and, as you fill the slots over time, will ensure that gift-giving is easy for years to come.
