So it's time to get the block set that matches your needs: the Shun Classic 9-Piece Chef's Choice Block Set.

Santoku for added cutting versatility. The Chef's Choice Block Set also includes our 6-in. Utility Knife, Shun Classic Paring Knife and the 8.25-in. The offset handle makes it easy to slice through breadwithout hitting knuckles on the cutting board.Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife features hollow-ground indentations for extra-easy, extra-perfect slicing. The Shun Classic Boning/Fillet Knife makes it easy to work with meats, poultry, and fish. The Shun Classic Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main functionremoving or paring away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. Its ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade.
Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger. In size, the Shun Classic 6-in.Utility Knife is between a chefs knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, tooalmost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chefs knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. Its nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwichfrom thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.
If there is one knife that you simply cant be without, its this one. Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks.
The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.
Stocking your kitchen is all about getting the tools that work best for you. May we suggest you try the Shun Classic 5.5-in. In size, it's between our small and full-sized santoku.
This in-between weight and size make it perfect for medium-sized kitchen tasks, from slicing carrots and shallots to mincing herbs to cutting chocolate or butter. Cooks with smaller hands or those who simply prefer a smaller, lighter knife may find that this smaller santoku becomes a top go-to knife. Some cooks have told us they use it in place of a paring knife for some tasks or love it for cutting up fruit for breakfast.
Boning/Fillet is adept at these two key kitchen chores. For boning, the narrow, sharp, curved blade gets in close to the bone, making it easy to separate meat from bone. Even fibrous tissue is no match for Shun's extremely sharp edge. Its perfect for trimming the silver skin from a tenderloin or roast or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces the drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy.When it comes to filleting fish, the blade's six-inch length is just right to glide through the body of the fish, quickly removing bones and skin. The D-shaped handle provides a secure grip for excellent control.
The offset handle position creates additional knuckle clearance and perfectly positions your hand for a more powerfuland thus, easiercut. The scalloped serrations will slice neatly into your loaf without skidding; no matter how crusty it is. You'll also enjoy the way the knife glides through bread without shredding and with fewer crumbs. The Shun Classic Offset Bread knife works equally well on tender desserts such as angel food cake, enabling you to create beautiful, tear-free slices.
Can the right knife really make food taste better? Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife's long, narrow blade allows you to make a cleaner cut, which helps keep more of the juicesand thus more of the flavortrapped in the meat. The longer blade lets you make precise slices with a single stroke, while the narrower profile and hollow-ground indentations help the blade glide through the meat with even less friction. Producing thin, beautiful, even slices of meat isnt hardwhen your have the right knife. The Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Slicing Knife is the right knife.
With each use of your knife, the razor-sharp edge naturally bends over just a tiny bit. The edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isnt making contact with the food. The answer is honing with the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel. It gently realigns the edge of the blade, prolonging the knife's sharpness. The Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has two surfaces: a smooth one for day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing.
While fine European knives can require honing after each use, Shun's harder steel means you can hone just once a week or so, depending on your level of use. To make honing to the correct 16° Shun angle easier, the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has a built-in 16° angle on the handle. The premium PakkaWood handle provides a secure grip and matches the handles of the rest of the beautiful Shun Classic line.
The Shun 22-Slot Bamboo Block is big enough to display a large Shun collection beautifully on your countertop. This handsome block includes slots for your honing steel, kitchen shears, and can even hold up to six steak knives.
Everything stays within easy reach when you keep this block in your kitchen. This attractive block is made of easy-to-clean, stain resistant bamboo. Durable bamboo is harder than maple, lighter than oak, and is one of the world's most renewable resources. Grown without chemicals or pesticides, bamboo matures rapidly and needs little water.
