Why choose the Shun Classic 7-Piece Knife Set when you can get a 9-inch Slicing knife and a 6-inch Chef knife for almost the same price? The set I’m talking about is the Shun Classic 9-Piece Knife Set. I’ve tried the Shun Classic knives before and they were amazing. Razor sharp blade and a comfortable handle. Now, I’m searching for the perfect birthday gift that I would give my sister and the set that I chose was the Shun Classic 9-Piece Knife Set with a bamboo block.
The Knives in the Set
You will get a 9-inch bread knife, a 9-inch slicing knife, an 8-inch chef’s knife, a 6-inch chef’s knife, a 6-inch utility knife, a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, a sharpening steel, a pair of TaskMaster kitchen shears, and a bamboo storage block. Can you believe that you get two chef’s knives?
As I have mentioned, I have worked with the Shun knives before. My friend had a Thanksgiving party last year and she was raving about her new Japanese knife set. Honestly, the knives were a looker. It had a pretty blade as it was going for a Damascus Steel look. She had mentioned that the stainless steel blade was cladded with 16 layers of stainless alloy on each side.
The edge of these knives are razor sharp as they have been sharpened up to a 16-degree angle. It’s absolutely impressive. I was a bit skeptical about the handle as it was very smooth so I thought it might be slippery but it was very comfortable to grip on. Moreover, there was a small mass stainless steel at the end of the handle. With the end cap, a stainless steel bolster and the blade that has been cladded, the balance of the knives is perfect.
I really recommend this knife set if you need a new one or you are out of ideas of gifts. I forgot to mention that it comes with a lifetime warranty and a gift box.
