This Shun 3 Piece Sharpening system is the perfect compliment to all your Shun Knives. The system takes the guesswork out of matching the factory 16 degree angle of your knife with the stone and steel since the bamboo stand is set at precisely this angle. The stand holds both the steel and a two sided sharpening stone for easy access. The stone has a medium 1000 grit side and a fine 6000 grit side.
the shun 3 peice sharpening station is just great. it also pairs great with the 300/1000 grit for every job imaginable. all my knives are extraordinarily sharp making work and home cooking "funner" than ever. i even sharpend a samurai sword letter opener that i use for non-kitchen related endeavors. an overall amazing addition to any collection.
Came with a little snag,but the amazing customer service quickly fixed my issue. The stone/steel combination works wonders on higher hardness knives like(of course) Shuns. The Bamboo stand seems more cosmetic but the deal is still A++
Have only used the kit once so far and I am very pleased with it. I am somewhat knife sharpening challenged and this system is very easy to work with. I look forward to using it for many years. Thank you.
