Shun’s Classic line are outstandingly sharp, durable and corrosion resistant as well as beautiful. Their razor-sharp blades are made from Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel and clad with Damascus stainless steel which is ground and bead-blasted, providing incredible edge retention. This honing steel keeps your blades sharper longer.
With each use of your knife, the razor-sharp edge naturally bends over; the edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isn’t making contact with the food. The answer is honing. The Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel 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 day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing. The Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has a built-in 16° angle on the handle.
Every Shun knife is handmade by skilled specialists in the illustrious Kai factories, where a 100-year-old tradition combined with the newest technology and advanced materials makes every knife a functional and durable work of art. Shun offer free lifetime sharpening and a lifetime warranty; if you take care of them, these knives will be the pride and joy of your kitchen for a lifetime.
