An incredible starter set for those looking to begin their Shun collection or to purchase that perfect gift for that special chef in your life; the Premier 2 Piece Knife Set features two of the most popular knife styles in all Shun lines. The set includes a Shun Premier 7-Inch Santoku knife for slicing, dicing and mincing and the Shun Limited Edition 3-Inch Vegetable Paring Knife Paring Knife for coring and garnishing. Elegant and beautiful, the Shun Premier line of knives is unlike any knives you’ve owned. Each knife features Shun’s proprietary VG-MAX cutting core and is Damascus clad with 34 layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel on each side. VG-MAX takes and retains the ultra-sharp 16-degree cutting edge keeping your knives sharper, longer. The hand-hammered finish (known as ‘tsuchime’ in Japanese) is not only beautiful, but creates the hollow-ground feature that reduces knife-drag and prevents food from sticking to the blade. The gorgeous Pakka wood handles in walnut finish are both sleek and stylish and are shaped to fit the palm of your hand in a variety of secure and comfortable grips. The Shun logo is embossed on the end-cap, making these knives beautiful in and out of the knife block. Incredibly thin, sharp blades and the stylish Japanese finishing details that Shun is famous for; your Premier line of knives will work just as hard as you do in your kitchen and be around for generations to come. Hand wash only; limited lifetime warranty.
