Shun Premier Essential 7-Piece Block Set Review

Pro: The style of the knife block is really intuitive as it allows you to see all the knives in the collection easily and quickly reach for the tool that you need.  The kitchen shears are really handy and strong enough to cut through poultry bone when portioning or through thick plastic packaging.  A very useful bonus to the collection.

Con: I would prefer if the block set had a knife sharpener built into the block.  The honing tool is great but most people don’t have the confidence to use one to sharpen knives, particularly expensive ones.  Since I would rather pay to have them sharpened then risk ruining my knives I find the honing tool to not be a particularly useful part of the collection and would have preferred another blade option.
