    The Shun-DMS300-Classic-3-Piece-Cutlery set is a great collection of knives to have around your kitchen. You might have to hone them from time to time, but they can be very sharp, and cooking prep like cutting, slicing and chopping does become quick and easy. Gift them to your retiring friend or to a family member as a wedding gift or for the Holidays.


    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.
