The ideal gift set for newlyweds, new home owners, and the budding chef, or for upgrades in your own kitchen, the Shun Premier 3 Piece Starter Set is sure to please any recipient. With VG10 steel core construction and 32 layers of stainless Damascus, these knives each have a 16-degree convex ground edge for precise cutting power. Beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision, the knives makes it easy for you to navigate your way through many chopping tasks in style. This set includes a 4-inch paring knife, a 6.5-inch utility knife, and an 8-inch chefs knife. The striking hammered finish, called tsuchime in Japanese, acts similarly to a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing foods from the blade, so you can quickly move from one task to another. The walnut pakkawood handle nestles comfortably in your hand, balanced with the beautiful Shun logo embossed on the bottom end. Whatever the occasion, you are sure to love giving (or receiving) these carefully crafted knives because of their exquisite style and the precision with which they cut.
