Shun Sora 2 Piece Starter Set with 8" Chef Knife and 6" Utility Knife

SKU: SKVBS0260

MSRP: $175.00

The Shun Sora 2-Piece Set includes one 8" Chef Knife and one 6" Utility Knife, two primary pieces every avid or aspiring home cook should own. This attractive and affordable set has a traditional Japanese Hamon wave design with a contemporary look. These quality knives are ready to tackle all of your medium-sized kitchen needs.

Lightweight and highly maneuverable with less weight of a Western knife, both Shun Sora 8" Chef and 6" Utility knives have secure grips, fine balance and easy maintenance.

In the tradition of Japan's ancient sword smiths, each elegant knife is handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a 100-step-Process. The Shun Sora line uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade Technology and combines a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper that put high performance materials at the precise place they are needed. Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the blade sections are laser cut then braze welded together. The blade is forged with 34 micro-layers of metal on each side of a VG10 "super steel" cutting core for a razor sharp edge. The resulting layers of this forged single piece of metal supports the core and adds stain and corrosion resistance to the blade.The durable, edge-retaining, easy to sharpen core of VG10 stainless steel is exposed at the critical point - the blade's cutting edge. Each blade of the Shun Premier knife is sharpened to a cutting angle of 16-degrees on each side. PP/TPE Polymer blend handle materials form the blade handle and are enhanced with a stainless steel logo.

Engraving: Up to 12 characters can be custom laser engraved on the Chef's Knife in this set.
