Shun Classic Knives

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

This is a very expensive knife kit and we've had it for three years. It comes with seven pieces and does a great job cutting meat, vegetables, frozen cakes and dense breads. The product claims to have a certain Japanese material in it that makes it sharper than its competitors and makes it last longer. It is a very expensive knife set and truthfully I don't think we would have ever bought it ourselves. For seven pieces it costs $500 and has a limited warranty. I don't know what will possibly go wrong with the knives so we really have no problem with that type of warranty. The knives are ideal for a person who cooks, chops and entertains a lot. They will never let you down when cutting any type of meat and allow you to cut it very thin without a strain. They are nice to look at sitting on the counter top so no complaints there. If we had to point out something bad about these knives, it would be the price and the cleaning factor. There are very nice knife sets out there that have 11 pieces that cost only $150. Ginsu and Chicago Cutlery make large sets for under $100 and they work great. We had the Ginsu set when we were first married and it last for ten years. The Shun Classic knives are delicate for washing. You have to wash them all by hand and CANNOT put them into the dishwasher or the material on them will fade and the knives will supposedly wear out much sooner. This is actually true of most nice knife sets in this price range. The best feature of these knives is the way they cut. You can cut a tomato and not have one bit of juice splash onto you.
