The Shun 13 Slot Bamboo Block displays up to 13 pieces of cutlery; including a honing steel and kitchen shears. The block's bamboo construction makes it harder than maple, and lighter than oak. Bamboo is ideal for kitchen accessories because it absorbs very little moisture, and it won't shrink or swell like other hardwoods. The attractive block is easy to clean, needing only an occasional wiping with a damp cloth. The natural hardness of bamboo means it resists knife marks and retains its handsome appearance even under consistent use. Display your Shun collection practically and beautifully with a bamboo knife block. Shun item number DM0830.
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.
