Housed within a beautiful gift box, this set of four Shun Classic 4.5” Steak Knives is an indispensable accompaniment for family meals and light entertaining. Offering a remarkably sharp, straight edge, these knives slice easily and cleanly through steak, gliding with ease and without serrations. These fine blades are at home with any classic steak dinner, filet mignon, veal or pork chops, prime rib, and all kinds of other meats.
Created starting with an extraordinarily hard core of VG10 steel and utilizing the Kasumi technique of making blades, a Shun Classic blade’s strong core is reinforced with sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side for a total of 32 layer of supporting SUS410/SUS431 steel. This method results in a superbly strong and sharp edge and allows the blade to slice and glide more easily through foods during use. It also leaves an eye-catching rippled effect across the blade known as “suminigashi” or “ink pattern.” The blades of the Shun Classic 4 Piece Steak Knife Set feature razor-sharp edges and full tangs, each delivering ultimate strength and balance in addition to splendid performance and notable edge retention.
Shun’s Pakkawood handles combine the natural beauty of wood with the durability of polymers in their ebony-black, resin-treated hardwood that provides eye-appeal as readily as it delivers superior durability. Sanded and buffed to a glossy surface, the handle resists moisture while the unusual D-shape feels comfortable and secure gripped within your hand. Shun Classic cutlery will retain edges better if hand-washed.
