The beauty of these knives is only surpassed by their performance. -Alton Brown, celebrity chef and author The Shun Classic Steak Knife Set includes 4 steak knives that come in a presentation box. This stunningly beautiful line of cutlery features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times. The VG-10 stainless steel is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a rust-free Damascus-look.
