The Shun Classic Asian 5 piece block set includes 3 Shun Classic knives with a steel and knife block. Shun Classic knives have a proprietary high-carbon VG-MAX cutting core steel for edge durability and retention. The knives are clad with 34 micro-layers of steel on each side supporting the cutting core for added stain/corrosion resistance and added food release properties. This set is built around the 7 Asian Cook's Knife, also known as a gyuto--a Japanese equivalent of a chef's knife. The blade profile is narrower than the traditional Western chef's knife and is lighter and more nimble.
