The Shun Classic 7-Piece Essential Block Set gives you all the must-have pieces of kitchen cutlery in one beautiful bamboo block. In addition to key pieces like the Shun Classic Paring, Utility, and Chef's Knives, the set also includes the Bread Knife with its low-frequency serrations and the handy Herb Shears. The shears are perfect for snipping herbs, of course, but you'll be amazed at how often they come in handy for other things, too. This essential set comes in its own laminated bamboo block with extra open slots so you can continue to expand your Shun Classic collection. Bamboo offers easy-care performance. It absorbs very little moisture and doesn’t shrink or swell like other hardwoods, making it ideal for kitchen accessories.
