The Shun TMDS0300 Premier 3 Piece Damascus VG-10 Blade Starter Set includes three of the most essential pieces of kitchen cutlery. The set is built around the Shun Premier 8" Chef's Knife, the one knife you're sure to use every time you cook. Of course, when the chef's knife isn't in your hand, you'll probably be using a paring knife for all those trimming and peeling tasks.
The Shun Premier 3-Piece Starter Set includes both the Premier Chef's Knife and Premier 4-in. Paring Knife. Finally, you also get the Shun Premier 6 1/2-in. Utility Knife. This attractive set comes in a tasteful box suitable for storage or gift-giving.
PakkaWood Handles, The blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with 16 layers on either side of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a hamon is formed -- similar to the line formed when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag and quickly releasing food from the blade. The walnut PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun logo embossed on the bottom adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in the hand or at rest in the block.
