Summary

Shun's multitasking prep set is an incredible value. The straight-bladed vegetable knife is great for precise trimming or quick mincing. The mini utility knife has an ultra-sharp scalloped blade that glides through everything from crusty bread to ripe tomatoes. Its rounded tip is just right for spreading condiments.

  • VG-MAX "super steel" blade is clad on each side with 34 microthin layers of high-carbon steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade.
  • Sharp scalloped and straight blades cut cleanly and efficiently through a multitude of foods.
  • Durable PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand.
  • This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens.
  • Handcrafted in Japan.
  • 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.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting If you look closely in the picture, you will see that these two pairing knives, unlike regular Shun Classic knives, do not have end caps. At the butt of these knives the handle just abruptly ends, revealing the tang. Does it matter? I think it does, for aesthetic and quality reasons. If you put these knives into a block with other Shun Classic knives, it will be very apparent that they do not match. The lack of end cap also means that bacteria and moisture can find its way into the handle. I returned these and purchased real Shun Classic paring knives, with end caps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful and sharp Bought this set as I was looking for paring knives. I think paring and chef knives are the kitchen workhorse knives.These were on sale which was a deciding but I know Shun makes top quality knives so no worries there. Incredibly sharp, well balanced and versatile. Like all quality knives, these are meant to be well cared for - not thrown in the drawer with other utensils or washed in the dishwasher, etc.but accepting that proviso, you will be rewarded with knives that are a pleasure to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small knives! These knives are a great addition to any kitchen. They are very sharp, easy to hold on to and handle, and work well for any slicing, dicing, or chopping you may need for prep. I would highly recommend. Do be careful, as they ARE sharp! We bought a magnetic knife holder to hang them on so we wouldn't have to fish in a drawer for them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Knives and Amazing Value Great little knives to have around. Bought this as a stocking stuffer for my husband. He loves them and so do I. They work well. Be warned, the handles are a little different then the rest of our Shun Classic Knives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shun Paring Knife Set As promised, very sharp and it keeps its edge. I've honed it after a couple of weeks use. Not much difference - so I am happy. I like that each knife has a different edge shape.
