The Story

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 from Sharp and sexy Shun knives are super sharp but isnt that what you want in a knife?These things will cut though anything, are easy to hold and have the perfect balance needed when doing knife work. I recommend Shun to anyone who sees our knives!Buy them, add to them and love them for years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knives I bought these for myself approximately two months ago. Although I wouldn't consider myself a gourmet chef by any means, I do enjoy cooking. I had a friend recommend Shun knives to me due to their reputation for outstanding quality as well as their ergonomic "D" handle design. I've been really pleased with my purchase thus far. They are extremely sharp, and there is a noticeable difference in how smooth and quickly they cut through fruits and vegetables compared to my old knives. The chef's knife has indentations on it much like a santoku knife that allows slices of fruits and vegetables to fall away from the blade rather than sticking to it while cutting slices in succession, which is one thing that I've notice that I really like. Aside from function, these knives could be purchased on the basis of appearance alone. The dark pakkawood handles and the ripple effect seen in the blades adds a unique and elegant look to the knives that is modern, yet gives a nod to their traditional Japanese samurai inspiration. I highly recommend buying these knives if you're in the market for some new cutlery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I purchased the Shun Classic 8 Piece Knife Set for a shower gift for my son and his fiancé . My son loves to cook and has an extensive collection of different knives. He has researched many sets on the internet and decided this was the one he wanted. I am sure he will be very happy that he is getting this set.Also it is a very nice looking set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Knives Ever! At the recommendation of a friend whom I consider to be a culinary enthusiast, I bought this knife set. They are well-made and have a very ergonomic feel to them. I use the chef knife the most, and it handles slicing and chopping with ease. Definitely would recommend Shun knives for anyone looking to upgrade his or her cutlery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Knife I've ever owned This is the first high end knife I've purchased and it has brought a whole new love of cooking to my kitchen. For years, I've been using inexpensive knives and never knew what I was missing. I love chopping everything in site! It chops smoothly and perfectly. I even love onions and tomatoes. I will never use a low end knife again. This is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Possible Knife Absolutely loved the knife! By far the best knife I've ever had the pleasure of holding. Straight out of the box it was literally razor sharp and ready to go. I've been using the knife daily now for about a month and have no problems at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have a number of Professional grade knives including 8 Shun knives. They are by far the best I've ever used. This knife is perfect for dicing / slicing garlic, onions and a myriad of other vegetables when a larger knife just isn't needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Knifes We registered for the Shun 8 piece knife set for our wedding. We could not be happier with them. They are extremely well made, very sharp and very durable. Someone told me that they used to make samurai swords back in the day... don't know if it 's true or not but all the more reason to get them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of knives. Sharp and perfect for professional chefs or experienced cooks. If cost is an issue, other sets at half the cost by Shun work just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bought these for a wedding shower gift. Got a call from the bride two days later saying she cut the prep time for her salsa by 20 minutes. The knives didn't even hesitate cutting through the tomatoes
