Details: Begin a personalized collection or give the gift of high-performance, hand-crafted Shun kitchen knives with the Premier 3-Piece Build-a-Block Set. From Shun’s Premier series, the included Chef’s Knife features a hammered tsuchime finish, Damascus cladding around a VG-MAX super steel cutting core and both the knife and included Honing Steel have a beautiful walnut PakkaWood contoured handle. PakkaWood is real wood that has been infused with resin for durability and water resistance. The knife and steel fit perfectly into the Bamboo Block, leaving four open slots to customize. The beautiful modern lines and slimline design of the block take up less space on a kitchen counter. Sustainable bamboo is an ideal material for kitchenware as it does not absorb moisture like other woods and therefore does not shrink and swell. This set is a perfect starter gift for newlyweds, graduates, an aspiring chef, home cook or a meaningful gift for a housewarming, hostess, host or family member.
