    Shun knives reflect the craftsmanship of a centuries-old tradition of Japanese knife making. This set offers two essentials for everyday food prep. The paring knife has a short, pointed blade for precision tasks like peeling, segmenting and hulling. The chef's knife has blade indentations that reduce sticking and friction so you can work more quickly.

    • Two-piece set includes 15 cm hollow-ground chef's knife and 9 cm paring knife.
    • VG-MAX "super steel" blade is clad on each side with 34 microthin layers of stainless steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade.
    • Exceedingly sharp cutting edges are long-lasting and easy to maintain.
    • The chef's knife has blade indentations that reduce friction and keep slices from sticking.
    • Durable PakkaWood handles resist moisture and have a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand.
    • Handcrafted in Japan.
    • Paring knife: 9 cm blade, 13 cm handle; 227 g
    • Chef's knife: 15 cm blade, 13 cm handle; 150 g
    • Handcrafted in Japan.

    Use

    • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
    • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
    • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

    Care

    • Handwash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
    • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
    • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
    • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
    • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

    Taking care of our customers, employees and our service providers is our top priority.

    We continue to follow current guidelines and restrictions set by the Australian government to ensure that we are doing all that is possible for our teams and community to remain protected, while continuing to serve our customers’ needs in creating a comfortable and functional home.

    As the coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in Victoria has escalated and in light of the Stage 3 lockdown restrictions in Melbourne metro, we have made the decision to suspend our Deluxe Delivery service statewide. We will continue to deliver our products via Small Parcel, Small Standard and Standard delivery.

    Additionally, our Small Standard and Standard Delivery service will no longer provide a room of choice delivery but instead will be delivered into the customer’s choice of either their home’s first room closest to their door or into their garage.

    This will be effective starting 9 July 2020 and will continue until the current guidelines and restrictions are removed. Our delivery service in other states will not be affected.

    We offer four types of delivery (Small Parcel, Small Standard, Standard, Deluxe) determined by the products in your order. A product's delivery type is displayed under the "Stock Status" information on each product page online. Delivery charges are determined by your delivery destination and are charged per order. Multiple-product orders are charged according to the product with the highest delivery type. Sometimes products may arrive separately but you will only be charged one delivery fee per order. Also, products delivered separately may be sent via the delivery type of that product rather than the overall order.

    Please provide a street address for delivery - we cannot ship to PO Boxes.
