The Shun-DMS300-Classic-3-Piece-Cutlery is the kind of retirement gift that can make seasoned chefs out of even first-time cooks who have never donned an apron in their entire life. The complete set is presented in an elegant box that includes a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, 6-inch utility knife, and 8-inch chef’s knife. These knives are crafted out of VG-10 high-carbon stainless-steel blades with 16 layers of stainless alloy that gives them a sleek Damascus clad look. Completely rust resistant, they have a blade profile that makes cutting food so much faster and very efficient. Added to that, is the black laminated Pakkawood handles and stainless-steel end caps that make them a stylish accessory for any kitchen.
The Shun-DMS300 knives are created by way of a cladding process. This strategy infuses microscopic air bubbles that ensure there is no friction when chopping and cutting produce. Although the set comes with a lifetime warranty, you can help them last longer by washing them by hand.
