The Shun Classic Blonde 6-inch Utility Knife has a narrow, straight blade that’s perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed. Alongside the Chef’s Knife and Paring Knife, it’s one of the most versatile and commonly used Western kitchen knives. Best for meat, fish, or vegetables, the refined and accurate cuts enabled by Shun knives may lead to some of the best cooking (and eating) experiences you and your guests will ever have. Crafted from our proprietary VG-MAX cutting steel with Damascus cladding that resists corrosion and holds an edge. As with all Shun cutlery, you receive free sharpening for life at our office in Tualatin, Oregon – see packaging for more details. Hand wash only.

The narrow, straight blade of the Shun Classic utility knife features 34 layers of Damascus steel cladding on each side, which surround the high-carbon VG-MAX core to combine both form and function.
The beautifully modern, D-shaped, blonde PakkaWood handle encases the full composite tang blade, reducing unwanted rotation and improving grip for right and left-handed chefs alike.
Light slicing and medium rocking actions, such as trimming green beans or cutting sandwiches, call for this knife. It works particularly well on thin-skinned and easily crushed vegetables, such as tomatoes.
Handcrafted in Japan, this kitchen knife is ground and honed to a razor sharp 16-degree edge out of the box. It’s balanced immediately forward of the bolster for increased precision and injury prevention when used in hand.
Santoku, nakiri, boning, slicing, or steak – Shun blades positively glide through food when used in a back-and-forth or rocking motion that applies some force parallel to what’s being cut, letting the edge do the work.
