The Shun Cutlery Premier 6 Piece Basic Block set comes in its own laminated bamboo block with extra open slots so you can continue to expand your Shun Premier collection. Perfect for the kitchen, since the bamboo absorbs very little moisture and doesn’t shrink or swell like other hardwoods.
• 4-in. Paring Knife - TDM0700: The paring knife is an indispensible kitchen prep knife. For peeling, trimming, making decorative cuts, or even for chopping small foods like shallots or garlic, the small size of the paring knife gives you complete cutting control.
• 6 1/2-in. Serrated Utility Knife - TDM0722: The blade edge is serrated at the front and back, but has a fine edge in the middle. This means that it's perfect for cutting foods with a tougher or more resilient exterior and a tender interior.
• 8-in. Chef's Knife - TDM0706: This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier's thinner blades makes this chef’s knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives.
• Herb Shears - DM7100: The extra-fine 16° cutting edge cuts of our elegant Shun Herb Shears cuts cleanly and won't bruise delicate herbs. A built-in blade notch makes it easy to strip herbs or cut through their stems.
• Honing Steel - TDM0790: gently realigns the edge of your blade. It offers two honing surfaces: a smooth one for day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing.
• 11-Slot Bamboo Block - DM0831: features 11 slots positioned horizontally, which keeps pressure off the extremely fine edges of Shun blades. This attractive block is made of easy-to-clean, stain resistant bamboo
