Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. Shun kitchen knives are made by KAI Corporation, which has been handcrafting blades in the spirit of the legendary sword smiths of Seki City, Japan for over 100 years. Every Shun knife is handmade by a team of highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps. This tradition of Japanese sword-making excellence in Seki City is combined with technology and advanced materials in each Shun knife.
The Shun Classic 7-Piece Essential Block Set gives you all the must-have pieces of kitchen cutlery in one beautiful block. In addition to key pieces like the Shun Classic Paring, Utility, and Chef’s Knives, the set also includes the Bread Knife with its low-frequency serrations 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 kanso hardwood block features 8 slots to accommodate your 8 favorite pieces of Shun Kanso kitchen cutlery. The block offers 4 wider slots, two narrower, as well as a slot for a pair of kitchen shears and a honing steel.
The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives’ beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun’s proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

IN JAPAN, THE BLADE HAS LONG BEEN MORE THAN JUST A TOOL; THE WAY OF THE BLADE IS A WAY OF LIFE.
In Japanese, “Shun” (pronounced “shoon” and rhymes with “moon”) is the precise moment during the year when any particular food is at the peak of its perfection. Shun is when fruit is at its sweetest, when vegetables are perfectly ripe, perfectly fresh, and perfectly delicious. Shun is in harmony with the natural rhythms of the seasons. Shun Cutlery proudly takes its name from this Japanese culinary tradition of preparing and eating the very freshest food at the perfect “shun” moment. It is a tradition we live up to every day, making fine kitchen knives that are always at the peak of their perfection, too.
IN THE SPIRIT OF THE LEGENDARY SWORD SMITHS OF JAPAN
From the legendary samurai swords said to contain the soul of the warrior who wielded them to the handcrafted kitchen knives of today, the exquisite craftsmanship of Japanese blades is admired worldwide. Since the 13th century, Seki City has been the heart of the Japanese cutlery industry. For more than 100 years, it has also been home to the Kai Corporation, the makers of Shun fine cutlery. Inspired by the blademaking traditions of ancient Japan, todays highly skilled Shun artisans produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty.

Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today.

Kai’s 100-year-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.
