The Shun Classic Pro 3 Piece Asian Chef’s Knife Set offers three fine blades that leave any kitchen well equipped for a wide variety of tasks. Consisting of a 6.5” Deba (VG0002), a 9.5” Yanagiba (VG0005) and the 6.5” Usuba (VG0007) contained within a handsome bamboo box, this set makes an excellent gift for those endeavoring into Japanese methods of food preparation.
The wide blade of the Shun Classic Pro 6.5” Deba functions as part chef’s knife and part cleaver, beheading and filleting fish, boning poultry and cutting meat with ease. Use for deft and precise mincing, dicing and chopping, as well as with any task often reserved for a chef’s knife. For carving and slicing roasts, poultry, and raw fish, the Shun Classic Pro 9.5” Yanagiba proves to be the ideal blade. This long thin “willow blade” cuts cleanly and enables foods to retain more flavorful juices. Lastly, the Shun Classic Pro 6.5 Usuba presents the perfect vegetable knife, with its flat blade, straight edge and squared tip. Use for push and pull chopping with nearly any vegetable, including onions, carrots, lettuce, cabbage and more.
Skillfully crafted from pure high-carbon VG10 stainless steel using the intensive Honyaki method of knife-making, blades of the Shun Classic Pro series offer classic Japanese blade shapes. The complicated Honyaki technique produces a scalpel-like edge with a 16˚ angle for unsurpassed sharpness. The combination of VG10 steel and this procedure results in exquisitely sharp blades that hold their edge significantly longer than most knives. Blades of the Shun Classic Pro 3 Piece Asian Chef’s Set display a beautiful, acid-etched graffiti design, incorporating the Shun logo and differing with each blade style. Each blade utilizes a full tang for exceptional balance while the blades’ backs offer slight hollow-ground indentations for quick and precise gliding during use.
Crafted from resin-treated hardwood, Shun’s PakkaWood handles fuse the durability of polymer plastic with the inherent beauty of wood. The ebony-black D-shaped handle provides a natural and secure grip within your palm. Sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy finish, the handle offers superior durability and moisture resistance. The beautiful and extraordinary Shun Classic Pro knives retain their edge even longer if hand-washed.
