KSDM0741: 6" Ultimate Utility Knife

Shun Cutlery

The Shun Classic Ultimate Utility knife's cutting edge has a low-frequency serration that makes the knife perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, as well as chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing. The Ultimate Utility knife has a broad blade and a curved belly, allowing you to rock the knife on the cutting board. 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 break knife to cut the sandwich in half without tearing. It may not look traditional, but the Shun Classic Ultimate Utility knife is about performance where it counts—in your kitchen. Try it and you'll be amazed at how often you'll find yourself reaching for this multi-function knife.

About Shun Classic Series

Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Behind the knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

Cons: None
I love great knives. I love to cook. I make a lot of sandwiches. Why didn't I have this knife? As mentioned elsewhere, it's a bread knife and a spreader. It zips through tomatoes like nobody's business. And -- what? -- it's damascus-clad VG10 steel! That just sails this one way over the top. Excellent fit and finish. Really nice pakkawood handle. Design looks like something out Japanese sci-fi -- in a good way. I'll bet the person who designed this is really cool. Cannot say enough great about this knife, so I will just stop here.
