Consisting of an 8” Carving Knife and a Curved Carving Fork, the Shun Ken Onion 2 Piece Carving Set perfectly complements any large family dinner or holiday celebration that centers around a roast. Carving becomes a joyful occasion with the Shun Ken Onion 8” Carving Knife in one hand and the Shun Ken Onion Curved Carving Fork in the other. The 8 inches of long, thin blade is the perfect choice for slicing meats either paper thin or thick and juicy, and everywhere in between. The razor sharp edge slices cleanly with more flavorful juices remaining within the tender meat. The 6 inch tines of the curved carving fork offer a sharp pierce and a secure grip for serving and slicing. The prongs prove helpful to test if the roast is done, as well as when moving meats from pan to plate. This 2 piece carving set makes a marvelous gift for any chef who loves a good roast, and comes housed within an attractive bamboo presentation box for storage when not in use.
Cutlery of the Shun Ken Onion line has strong VG10 steel at each blade’s core, which is supported by thirty-two layers of Damascus cladding - sixteen layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel on each side. The Kasumi process of knife-making results in a blade that glides and slices through foods with great ease, and bestows an eye-catching rippled effect upon the blade known as suminigashi, or “ink pattern.” This razor-sharp blade exhibits extraordinary edge retention, with a full tang for uncommon strength and balance.
Displaying dramatic curves devised for performance, power, and ease, the Shun Ken Onion series features many innovative designs for optimal control and reduced strain. The handle arcs to match the curve of your palm, and the bolster extends over the back of the spine at an angle. Striking beauty and unmatched ergonomics go hand in hand, and encourage a professional pinch grip while cutting, whether the knife is gripped with left hand or right.
Shun’s PakkaWood, a resin-treated hardwood, is used to construct the ebony handles, which are then sanded and buffed to a smooth, shiny finish for enhanced durability and moisture resistance. For better edge retention, Shun cutlery is best if hand washed.
