Need a blade with the precision of a paring knife and the power of a chef’s knife? The Shun Classic 6-inch Utility Knife provides both. The VG-MAX steel cutting core, an exclusive Shun formula, contains increased tungsten, enabling the blade to be sharpened into an incredibly fine edge, and additional carbon to improve strength and durability. The core is covered in 68 micro layers of Damascus steel, providing a beautiful pattern that appears after it has been bead-blasted. The utility knife offers a sleek look and high-quality performance. The narrow, straight blade is ideal for trimming, dicing, cutting and slicing. The quality of the blade demonstrates the innovation and advanced technology that Shun prioritizes in its knives. Derived from the Japanese word “shun,” indicating peak ripeness of food, Shun strives to produce cutlery of peak perfection. Handmade by highly skilled specialists, their blades are functional works of art, an exquisite and essential addition to any kitchen.
A member of the stylish Shun Classic line, this multipurpose utility knife comfortably handles any small-scale kitchen cutting need from chopping to peeling and slicing. The utility knifes compact size makes it easy to handle and thus a favorite among home and professional chefs. The tool features a narrow sloping blade measuring 6 inches in length with a piercing tip.
Leveraging a 90-year history of superior workmanship, Shun knives are precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Using technologically advanced processes, a VG-10 “super steel” core is clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus-look blade. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knifes aesthetic appeal, it also prevents morsels from sticking and avoids crushing or damaging foods. Forming a comfortable D-shaped hold, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin comprise the unique ebony Pakkawood handle. A traditionally offset stainless-steel bolster protects knuckles while a steel end-cap finishes the piece. Although dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. This product includes a lifetime warranty. — Amy Arnold
