Kai Shun Classic White 3 Knife, Whetstone and Block Set / Walnut Block

Kai Shun adapts centuries-old samurai blacksmithing to make exceptional Japanese knives for the modern cook. Every knife in their world-renowned Classic range has a steep tapered blade, which makes it much sharper than a Western knife. A core of hard VG MAX steel, surrounded by 32 layers of Damascus steel, makes it extremely durable and rust-resistant, ensuring the knife retains its edge in between sharpenings—with a whetstone only. The layers, which create a unique pattern on each knife, help prevent food from sticking to the side of the blade. The tarnish-proof pakkawood handle has a chestnut (or ‘D’) shape that moulds perfectly to a right-handed grip. The balance and overall lightness of these knives make this set a great investment, and the inclusion of a sharpening stone and a magnetic block that protects the blades ensures maximum effectiveness. The set includes:
  • A 20cm Chef's knife
  • A 15cm utility knife
  • A 9cm paring knife
  • A Stonehenge walnut knife block with stainless steel base
  • A combination 300/1000 whetstone
We offer a free annual sharpening service for 10 years after the purchase of a Kai Shun knife, exclusively for customers on our mailing list. Read our guide on how to use a whetstone here.

About The Brand


Since its founding in 1908, Kai knives have held a cult status in Japan—and since their European debut in 1980, the rest of the world has caught on. Taking their inspiration from samurai blacksmithing but incorporating modern manufacturing processes, Kai has mastered the art of making extremely sharp, durable knives that feel effortless to use. All their knives are manufactured in Seki, the knife capital of Japan. As their products reached global popularity, Kai has expanded their range to include European shapes like the chef’s knife as well as ambidextrous handles, such as in the Kai Shun Premier and Kai Shun Nagare ranges.
