Shun Classic 2 Piece Meat Set


If you prepare meat in your kitchen on a regular basis, the Shun Classic 2-Piece Meat Set was made for you. These Classic Series knives from Shun are forged from high-carbon stainless-steel for razor-sharp blades that stay that way. These knives are Damascus style blades with 16 micro-layers of high-carbon steel on either side of Shun's VG-10 "super steel" core. The 6 inch Meat Cleaver is ideal for breaking down whole poultry and larger cuts of meat. The wide, flat blade of the Cleaver allows you to cleanly cut through both flesh and bone, but can also be used to tenderize meat. The Flexible Hollow Edge Ham/Salmon Slicer in this set excels at making ultra-thin slices of meat, but is also excellent for filleting and skinning fish. Handcrafted in Japan. Lifetime Warranty. Shun item number DMS235.

Shun DMS235 Classic 2-Piece Meat Set Includes:

  • 6" Meat Cleaver (DM0767)

  • 10" Ham-Salmon Slicer (DM0765)

Shun Technology Highlights

  • VG-10 stainless steel: Adds cobalt for strength and hardness, vanadium for superior edge retention.  The higher density allows the steel to be tempered to a higher Rockwell (60-62). Requires minimal care to avoid corrosion. Razor-sharp blade and phenomenal edge retention.

  • 16° Angle: Blade is sharpened to 16°. Ensures food is cut properly and precisely; no torn or bruised food so ingredients retain the same flavor and freshness.

  • PakkaWood® Handles: Resin-impregnated natural hardwood; waterproof, durable, comfortable; won't harbor bacteria.

  • Awards: Blade Magazine's Blade Show Kitchen Knife of the Year winner (2003 - Classic 8"� Santoku, 2005 - Ken Onion 8"� Chef's, 2006 - Elite 10"� Chef's, 2007 - Kaji, 2008 - Shun Classic Line, 2010 Premier Line, 2011 - Fuji Line).

Shun Classic Series Features

Shun's Classic Series offers the widest assortment of traditional Japanese and European blade shapes and contemporary designs. At first glance, you'll notice instantly the beautiful waved pattern on the blade which resembles a combination of tree-rings and ripples in water. This form of Kasumi-style knife making similar to pattern Damascus, or in Japanese suminigashi ("�ink pattern"�), is not only visually appealing but actually allows the blade to slide through food easier. This variation of pattern Damascus is formed by folding, welding, grinding, and polishing 32 layers (16 per side) of softer steel (SUS410/SUS431) that protect and support the VG-10 stainless steel core. The D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handle fits perfectly in the hand and stabilizes the blade to prevent turning.

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to "�at the peak of perfection,"� and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "�Shoon"�) have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
