New Shun Premier Blonde 5 Piece Starter Block Knife Set w/ Slimline Block TDMS0540W
The Shun Premier Blonde 5-piece Starter Set gets you started right with the three most-needed kitchen knives—the Shun Premier Blonde 8-in. Chef's Knife, the 4-in. Paring Knife, and the 6.5-in. Utility Knife. There's also a Combination Honing Steel to help maintain your edge. Everything fits in our Slimline Bamboo Block designed to take up less space on your countertop. There's also room to expand your set with one additional knife and a handy pair of kitchen shears.
Chef's 8" Knife
Your chef's knife will be the most-used knife in your kitchen, so you want to find the one that feels like an extension of your arm. The beautiful Shun Premier Blonde 8-in. Chef's Knife just may be the one. This breathtaking knife is lightweight, agile, and offers an extremely comfortable grip. In fact, Shun Premier Blonde's thinner blades makes this chef's knife lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef's knives. The 8-in. length and razor-sharp edge are perfect for slicing and dicing a full range of foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and comes in extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, this precision kitchen knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
Paring 4" Knife
The paring knife is an indispensable kitchen prep knife. For peeling, trimming, making decorative cuts, or even for cutting small foods like shallots or garlic, the compact size of the paring knife gives you complete cutting control. Since every kitchen needs a paring knife—and since you are sure to use it just about every time you cook—it makes sense to own a paring knife you can love. May we suggest the Shun Premier Blonde Paring Knife? Of course, it is beautiful. But its real beauty comes from how well it performs. A thin lightweight blade and a razor-sharp edge make every paring task a breeze. The contour on the bottom of the handle ensures an excellent grip whether held by the handle or in a pinch grip.
Utility 6.5" Knife
A good utility knife is the third member of your essential kitchen knife line up. In size, a utility is between a chef's knife and a paring knife, making it the perfect size for all those in-between tasks. For trimming green beans, broccoli, and other jobs where you need some precision, your utility knife is an excellent choice. Any time a paring knife seems like too little and a chef's knife too much, reach for a utility knife. The Shun Premier Blonde Utility Knife offers a razor-sharp 6-in. edge that also makes quick work of anything that goes in a sandwich—meats, cheeses, tomato slices, and more. That specialized use is why this style of knife is also sometimes called a sandwich knife.
