Shun Classic 8 Piece Epicurean Block Knife Set DMS0820

The Shun Classic 8-Piece Epicurean Block Set gives you all the must-have pieces of kitchen cutlery—and then some—in one beautiful bamboo block. In addition to key pieces like the Shun Classic Paring, Utility, and Chef's Knives, the set also includes the Offset Bread Knife that will keep your knuckles off the cutting board, a Hollow-Ground Santoku, and the handy Herb Shears. The shears are perfect for snipping herbs, of course, but you'll be amazed at how often they come in handy for other things, too. This essential set comes in its own laminated bamboo block with extra open slots so you can continue to expand your Shun Classic collection. Bamboo offers easy-care performance. It absorbs very little moisture and doesn’t shrink or swell like other hardwoods, making it ideal for kitchen accessories.

Set includes:
3.5-in. Paring Knife
The Shun Classic Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main function—removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It’s ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other
detail
work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.
6-in. Utility Knife
In size, the Shun Classic 6-in. Utility Knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife.
Its
very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as
tomatoes,
to meats and cheeses.
8-in. Chef's Knife
If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Classic 8-in. Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades
makes
it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.
8.25-in. Offset Bread Knife
Have you ever found yourself hovering over the edge of the cutting board so that you don't knock your knuckles on the board as you reach the bottom of the stroke? The Shun Offset Bread Knife solves the problem.
The offset handle position creates additional knuckle clearance and perfectly positions your hand for a more powerful—and thus, easier—cut. The scalloped serrations will slice neatly into your loaf without skidding; no matter how crusty it is. You'll also enjoy the way the knife glides through bread without shredding and with fewer crumbs
.The
Shun Classic Offset Bread knife works equally well on tender desserts such as angel food cake, enabling you to create beautiful, tear-free slices.
7-in. Hollow-Ground Santoku
A santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. Like a chef’s knife, the santoku is used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. The name means “three virtues.” Depending on who you ask, the name refers either to the three types of foods it works well with—vegetables, proteins, and fruit—or for the three types of cuts at which it excels—slicing,
dicing,
and chopping. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through the food more easily. When we first introduced the Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku to the market, it was named “Kitchen Knife of the Year” by Blade magazine. The Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery.
