Presented in a dark wooden box and red cloth interior, the Shun Classic Carving Knife Set makes a special gift, and a lovely treat for yourself.
With the very special Shun Classic Carving Knife, carving roasts at the table doesn't have to be an intimidating task. The knife is designed to give you excellent accuracy, with a curved, narrowed off tip, so you can trace the bones and ligaments in a roast and create neat, uniform slices. With the super sharp 16° edge, you can create slices however thin you want to, without creating rough, teared edges. The included carving fork has two long, sharp prongs, to keep everything stable as you work on your craft.

The Classic line from preeminent Japanese knife maker Shun encapsulates some of the best designs and features in the market. Rarely seen in the consumer market, the resin hardened Pakkawood handle is top class, combining the looks and long lasting qualities of wood with the durability of plastic or steel. In a 'D' shape, Shun Classic knife handles have a flat left side with a rounded palm facing edge, in order to best fit in your hand. Left handed models have a reversed design.
Shun Classic knives are constructed from a unique, high grade Japanese steel alloy, termed VG Gold 10. VG-10 is distinguished for its high purity from foreign materials, preventing corrosion, weak spots and other causes of wear and tear. VG-10 is a highly stable alloy, so that Shun can achieve very narrow points for the blade edge - approximately 16° - without requiring a demanding maintenance regime and frequent sharpening.
For a distinctive look and better slicing performance, Shun Classic blades are formed by a laminating method, folding 33 layers of VG-10 steel in a stratified pattern to create the sought after Damascus appearance. With this laminating method, Shun can tailor the proportions and densities of the component elements (carbon, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium and cobalt) at different points in the blade, recreating the same process used to create traditional samurai swords.
