New Shun Classic 5 Piece Starter Block Knife Set DMS0530. The Shun Classic 5-Piece Starter Block set includes three of the most essential Shun knives, plus the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel and a beautiful 6-slot Slimline Block. Chef's Knife, the 3.5-in. Paring Knife, and the 6-in.Regular honing with the included Shun Combination Honing Steel helps maintain your edge and prolongs the time between sharpenings. The Slimline Bamboo Block takes up less space on your countertop and offers easy-care performance. Even with all this, you have room to add another knife and a pair of kitchen shears to your collection. The Shun Classic Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. Think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile.
It gets its name from its main function-removing or "paring" away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for cutting small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger. 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.Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef's knife. 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. If there is one knife that you simply can't be without, it's this one. 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. With each use of your knife, the razor-sharp edge naturally bends over just a tiny bit. The edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isn't making contact with the food.The answer is honing with the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel. It gently realigns the edge of the blade, prolonging the knife's sharpness.
The Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has two surfaces: a smooth one for weekly honing, and a micro-ribbed one for monthly honing. While fine European knives can require honing after each use, Shun's harder steel means you can hone just once a week or so, depending on your level of use. To make honing to the correct 16° Shun angle easier, the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has a built-in 16° angle on the handle. The premium Pakkawood handle provides a secure grip and matches the handles of the rest of the beautiful Shun Classic line.
Perfect for kitchens with limited counter space, the Shun slimline bamboo block accommodates up to six Shun kitchen tools. There are slots for two larger knives and two for medium or small knives. There's also a slot for the honing steel needed for maintaining your edge as well as one to accommodate kitchen shears.
