Description
KSVB0741: Sora Ultimate Utility Knife VB0741
Shun
 
It doesn't look traditional, but the Shun Sora Ultimate Utility Knife is amazingly versatile. The cutting edge offers a low-frequency serration that makes it perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, yet it can also be used for chopping and slicing. The wide blade with its rounded tip also makes it a great knife for spreading mayo on a sandwich, then the serrations work like a bread knife to cut the sandwich in half without tearing. Try it and you'll be surprised at how often you'll find yourself reaching for this multi-function knife.

The Shun Sora Ultimate Utility Knife is part of the exciting Shun Sora line that provides exceptional handcrafted Shun quality at an amazing price. Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed—on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. While Sora's blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese, the textured TPE polymer handle material provides a contemporary look, secure grip and balance, and is easy to maintain.

Pros: Sharpness, Material Quality, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Excellent blade for breads and soft foods
The blade is phenomenally sharp and will cut with very little effort. Right through breads and other soft stuff with no tearing or "chunking". Blade shape is great for spreading condiments/soft cheeses/etc after you've sliced your bread. Have used it for slicing meats because it was handy, and while it does that very smoothly, a non-serrated blade would probably be more efficient. Really like the way this cuts.
