Shun Knives Sora Series Cutlery - Japanese Knife Block Set of 6 PC
It's time to chop, cut, dice, mince, pare, and slice. It's time to prepare, and to cook. It's time for Shun. The Shun Cutlery Sora Knife Block Set can satisfy the most discriminating cook with the precise sharpness and beauty found in each tool. Authentic Japanese methods provide traditional blade shapes and handle designs. The textured handles are a blend of TPE/PP polymers which are contemporary and food-safe. Each handle provides easy maintenance, excellent gripping, and good balance. The comprehensive 32 degree double bevel San Mai blade is a Japanese tradition with a rolling wave design that is the heart of the Shun Knives Sora Series Cutlery pieces. The Shun Cutlery Sora Knife Block Set is a starter group of individual, hand-crafted functional art pieces.
San Mai is the ancient Japanese method of making superior quality knife blades. It is a merging of hard and soft steel compositions to bring out the best characteristics of both. The harder, high carbon steel piece provides good edge retention and sharpness. The softer spine grants durability and flexibility. Shun Knives Sora Series Cutlery is made using a special process of laser cutting two blade sections, one of each soft and hard steel. These are joined like a jigsaw puzzle, and then braze welded together. The visually attractive waves that pattern this joint is based on ancient sword hamon lines. The hamon is the graceful temper line of a differentially heat-treated blade. Each hamon line is different and unique. It is the mark, and visual evidence, that the maker worked with skilled efforts to produce the finest blade work possible. The best hamon line is clear, unbroken, and well-formed. Shun Cutlery Sora Knives display this commitment to the ancient method of San Mai blades.
