Consisting of an 8” Carving Knife and a 6.5” Carving Fork, the Shun Classic 2 Piece Carving Set perfectly complements any large family dinner or holiday celebration with a roast as its centerpiece. Any carving task becomes a joyful occasion with the Shun Classic 8” Carving Knife in one hand and the Shun Classic 6.5” Carving Fork in the other. The 8 inches of long, thin blade excel with slicing meats both paper thin and thick and juicy, and everywhere in between. The razor sharp edge ensures clean cuts with more flavorful juices remaining within the meat. The 6.5 inch tines of the carving fork provide a sharp pierce and a secure grip while slicing and serving. The prongs also prove helpful in testing to see if the roast is done, as well as when moving roasts from pan to plate. Housed within an attractive bamboo presentation box for storage when not in use, this 2 piece carving set makes an exceptional gift for any chef who loves a good roast.
Cutlery of the Shun Classic line starts with an exceedingly hard core of VG10 steel and is masterfully created using traditional Japanese knife-making methods. Supported with a total of thirty-two layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel - sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side - the strong blade of a Shun Classic knife is created using the Japanese Kasumi technique of making blades. Shun’s method and choice of steel produces a blade that resists rust and stains, glides effortlessly through foods, and displays a lovely, rippled, ink-like effect known as suminigashi along the blade. The pieces of the Shun Classic 2 Piece Carving Set offer a full tang and a razor-sharp edge for superior strength and balance in addition to notable performance and edge retention.
Shun’s ebony-black Pakkawood handle joins the inherent beauty of wood with the sturdiness of plastic with resin-treated hardwood handle that provides eye-appeal as readily as it delivers superior durability. Sanded and buffed to a hard, shiny finish, the handle resists moisture while its D-shape feels natural and secure nestled against your palm. Shun Classic cutlery is best if hand-washed for better edge retention.
