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.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife set Bought the set at great price, love it!I use them everyday, super easy to use and fit my hand perfectly, easy to clean as well, only thing is you can not sharp them by yourself, so better take good care of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic set of knives! Probably the best set of knives you will ever own! I researched for months, until I came down to two top brands. I headed to Williams-Sonoma for some expert advice. As soon as I held the Shun in my hand, I knew this was it! The handle grip is quite comfortable. A beautiful set of knives. Received quite a few compliments at Thanksgiving. Shun Kaji certainly rates 5 stars for excellence!
