- Use & Care
- 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.
- 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 bhall99 from I never realized how a good knife cuts I am by no means an advanced cook and have gone many years with just a ceramic knife and a cheap knife with meant to have holes in the blade. Yes I was shocked at the how easy my new Shun paring knife cut through the stalk of a head of cauliflower. I can not speak about differences between other good knives but for me this set was a perfect “try me” set, it contains the perfect 3 knives I need to perform what I need in knives. I wish I had known this years ago but I will get great use of them from now on.Date published: 2018-02-11Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveDallas from Wonderful knives The product is wonderful... the prices was excellent yet still expensive... so, I would have expected free standard shipping. Not the case... FYI.Date published: 2016-10-12
I’ve had recent hand surgery. The handles do not look like they would be easy to hold on to. Any input on the shape of the handle and if it’s straighter than normal design effects the ability to grip?Hi Nettie, If you're looking for Shun cutlery with "ergonomic" handles, we recommend the Kaji collection. Handles are made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control.
