These amazing razor-sharp knives are created in Seki City, Japan's 700-year-old center for samurai swords. Their "ripple" Damascus rust-free finish is achieved by forging 16 layers of steel on each side. Flexible, stick-resistant blades are stamped, hand-ground to an exceptional 16-degree angle, then hand-polished (see additional photos).

Rated 5 out of 5 by noellsky from LOVEI absolutely LOVE this Shun set. My husband and I had received another set but returned it for this one. BEST idea we made. We get so many compliments on the way they look and feel when slicing and dicing. Whenever I go to someones house to help cook, I make sure to grab one of my Shun knives. They are extremely sharp yet super light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderdog from Excellent Knives!These knives were a major upgrade from our previous set. We have found the handles to be very comfortable to hold and the knives a good weight. Unbelievably sharp! We do sharpen before every use. We did find that the Shun emblem did wear off because we were washing them with the coarse side of the sponge, so beware of that. Other than that, fantastic investment. We don't foresee having to buy any more knives in the future! If you are looking for knives, these are the ones!

Rated 5 out of 5 by steelburgher from Fantastic!These knives are worth the investment. They are well balanced and seem to almost grip the food. They are very easy to make very thin sliceing become an ease. Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by booksafe from good knivesI researched this brand of knives for a while and I think Crate and Barrel's price seems to be the lowest. Since I want bigger (longer) knives, I don't have too much choice but to buy this 12-piece set. They are great. I don't need to use too much force to cut sth, which actually make cutting safer. But, one of the knives doesn't seems to fit into the holes of the wooden box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They retain their cutting edge which in itself provides for additional safety. I have had many injuries by using a dull knife. After careful consideration I decided to try a set of good knives. After reviewing all my options, I decided on the Shun Ultimate 12 piece knife set. There is an assortment that fits the every job, I have. I find them easy to maintain. Beautiful construction. I don't generally like to keep anything on my countertops as I love the less is more effect, but my Shun knives are comtemporary and add a touch of class to my simplistic appraoch. Durability and a great value for all they provide.
