Shun 7-Piece Mixed Knife Block Set $479.99 +FS

Posted 05-19-2017 by Ubie at 03:06 PM
Did a search and didn't see this posted.
Price comes up as $599.99 on the website. Use discount code EXTRA for 20% off.
So, $599.99 - $120.00 = $479.99 (+tx if applicable in your location)

When I placed my order the original confirmation also included a rather insane amount for shipping (like $35?). When I got my shipping confirmation however shipping was free, it looks like everything on the site ships free if over $49.

7-Piece Set includes:

4 1/2" honesuki knife (Dual-Core)
6" utility knife (Classic)
8" kiritsuke knife (Premier)
6 1/2" hollow-ground nakiri knife (Kaji)
9" honing steel (Classic)
Kitchen shears
11-slot bamboo storage block



If you spend over $499 on Shun stuff there is also a $50 MIR being offered, cheapest possible useful thing I found was this knife roll for $39.95:

That is the Classic set, which is very different from the one at W-S. While the set at W-S does contain two piece from that line, the others are from much nicer product lines (Premier and Kija).

Eh. Shun's are overpriced and I have had quality issues with every knife I have bought from them (chipping) and take care of them well. The vast majority of folks just need a bread knife, small serrated knife, paring knife, large chef's for melons and larger objects and a smaller chef or santoku. Blocks are terrible for your knives - avoid. I use my $20 Victorinox Santoku 80% of the time. Victorinox is great for the price but any sharp knife is better than a dull one!!! Also have the long-gone Fujimaru Shun knock offs for when pretentious snobs come to the house. They also get IGT Italian red poured into DOCG bottles just to see how knowledgable they are Wink

Can afford whatever I want and choose to buy what brings me the best value and leaves money in my pocket and invested for early retirement, but thanks for the kind words, troll.
