The “ripple” Damascus finish on these five knives is achieved by forging 34 layers of steel on each side. Flexible, stick-resistant blades are stamped, hand-ground to an exceptional 16-degree angle, then hand-polished. This eight-piece set, a Crate and Barrel exclusive, includes 4″ paring, 9″ slicer, 9″ bread, 8″ chef’s and 6″ tomato knives as well as a sharpening steel and shears in an 11-slot knife block.
Each exquisite Shun knife is carefully crafted in a 100-step process inspired by ancient sword smiths. The amazing razor-sharp blades are created in Seki City, Japan’s 700-year-old center for samurai swords.
