Ideal for a small kitchen or any corner where compact knife block would be handy, this 5-piece set from Shun has a small footprint and an impressive set of 4-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch razor-sharp knives. Handcrafted in Japan, the knives feature walnut-finished PakkaWood handles with a full tang, 16-degree cutting edges, and hand-hammered tsuchime finish.

What we love about these knives is how they feel in the hand, well balanced and weighted, a curve to the silky-smooth handle that fits well in the palm. The hammered blades are functional as well as beautiful, helping sliced foods to slide easily off the blade.

Blades feature a core of extremely hard VG-MAX “super steel” clad on each side with 34 microthin layers of stainless steel.
