Shun Premier Carving Set : When you need to carve and serve turkey, prime rib, ham, leg of lamb and other holiday and everyday meats, the Shun Premier Carving Set makes your job effortless and time-saving. The carving fork's slender, straight tines gently pierce meats holding them steady while you carve. The slicing knife easily glides through the thickets of meats with precise cutting control. The Shun proprietary VG-MAX core blade with 68 outer layers (34 per side) of stainless-steel holds an incredibly sharp edge longer. The hammered tsuchime finish features a hollow-ground pattern that reduces drag and prevents foods from sticking to the blade. The Shun carving knife set is stain- and rust-resistant with razor-sharp beveled edges for superior cutting performance. Walnut PakkaWood handles are infused with a water-resistant resin and contours to comfortably nestle in the hand. Beautiful Shun knives take at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete and resemble hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. Elegantly boxed for gift giving or storage. The preeminent blade manufacturer in Japan, Shun introduced its exquisitely styled and exceptionally sharp Japanese-style knives to American kitchens in 2002. Compared to European and Western knives, the Shun Premier carving set is less bulky with hand-hammered, thinner blades honed to superior sharpness. The carving knife set reflects Shun's renowned craftsmanship and centuries-old Japanese knife making traditions.
