The Shun Damascus series of knives from KAI is one of the most comprehensive damask steel series worldwide, made from specific stainless damask steel with 32 layers. The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness. 

This set contains three of KAI's most popular chef's knives in a black wooden presentation box. The perfect starter set, it includes the Shun Damascus 20cm Chef's Knife, Shun Damascus 8.5cm Paring Knife and the Shun Damascus 15cm Utility Knife.
