Summary

Our exclusive Shun Hiro collection features high-performance Eastern-style knives designed for speed, agility and balance as well as striking beauty. A cutting core of ultra premium SG-2 steel gives them a super sharp, lasting edge, and hammered blades help keep foods from sticking for fast, efficient use. Handcrafted in Japan, our exclusive seven-piece collection includes essential knives for home cooks.

  • Eastern-inspired design with extremely thin, lightweight blades for fast and agile performance.
  • The blade's core of SG-2 powdered steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 32 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel, for a total of 65 layers.
  • SG-2 is an extremely fine-grained, dense and hard steel, which enables it to take and hold an exquisitely fine edge with long-lasting sharpness.
  • The hammered pattern (tsuchime in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking.
  • Contoured ambidextrous handles are designed for ultimate comfort and control.
  • Handles are dark charcoal-colored PakkaWood with crimson striations and an inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest.
  • Mirror-polished nickel silver bolsters and end caps.
  • These NSF-certified knives meet the high-level standards of commercial kitchens.
  • Knives are handcrafted in Japan.
  • Block is made in China.
  • A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
