In Japanese, “Shun” (pronounced “shoon” and rhymes with “moon”) is the precise moment during the year when any particular food is at the peak of its perfection…Shun Cutlery proudly takes its name from this Japanese culinary tradition of preparing and eating the very freshest food at the perfect “shun” moment. It is a tradition we live up to every day, making fine kitchen knives that are always at the peak of their perfection, too.
A word of art that takes more than 100 handcrafted steps to complete.
Incredibly sharp edges and unmatched aesthetics set Shun knives apart from every other kitchen knife on the market today. In the great tradition of Seki’s sword smiths, every knife is handmade by highly skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Every day, the legacy of ancient sword smiths serves as inspiration to the artisans in the Kai factories. Kai’s 100-year-old tradition of blade-making excellence, combined with the newest technology and the most advanced materials, makes every Shun knife a functional work of art.

Viking® 5-Ply Professional Cookware provides commercial grade quality for in-home use. With an elegant satin finish and five layers of metal, this premium line of cookware is specially handcrafted in the USA.
5-ply construction maximizes heat transfer and reduces energy usage, features that enable Viking cookware to deliver superior cooking performance. Each layer of metal is created to provide durability and efficiency. The exterior layer is a magnetic stainless steel that makes the cookware suitable for induction stovetops. The next layer of aluminum alloy bonds to the middle layer, which is pure 3004 aluminum. The fourth layer is an aluminum alloy bonded to the interior 18/10 high-grade stainless steel. Together, these five layers work in unison to transfer heat quickly and evenly while using less energy to achieve desired cooking temperatures.
Coated with an exclusive Exdura Green II ceramic coating, Viking® ceramic bakeware is free of PFOA or PTFE chemicals found in other nonstick coatings. Our ceramic coating is naturally stain and scratch resistant. The heavy-gauge carbon steel construction distributes heat more evenly while giving the pan added durability. The dual-sided silicone pads have been built into the handles for added grip when holding or moving the pan. Oven safe to 480 °F (250 °C).
