Shun Classic Knives, Sets & Tools

Seamlessly blending traditional Japanese blade styles with modern design, the Shun Classic line is truly a collection of functional art to behold. Honoring the timeless legacy of ancient Seki sword smiths, each knife is handcrafted by highly skilled artisans in Seki, Japan and requires more than 100 steps to complete. At the heart of every Classic blade is Shun's proprietary VG-MAX steel, which provides outstanding edge retention, while exquisite Damascus steel hugs the cutting core—creating a one-of-a-kind pattern unique to each blade. Finished with a D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handle, these knives are more than just sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, they're a literal feast for the eyes. All Classic products are protected by Shun's Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects, and include free sharpening for life.
