Crafted using an outstandingly hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 6” Utility Knife with Reverse Grip is crafted with traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. Ideal for the many precision tasks to be found around the kitchen, the blade offers a narrow and straight design and a length that falls between a paring knife and a chef’s knife. Small and medium vegetables such as broccoli and green beans can be trimmed confidently with this fine blade. Handy when putting sandwiches together, this exceptional piece of cutlery excels with meats and cheeses, in addition to a variety of fruits and vegetables.
The exceptionally hard core of the blade is supported on each side by 16 layers of Damascus cladding, formed utilizing the Kasumi method of making blades. This process creates an engaging rippled pattern upon the blade and allows the blade to glide and slide more easily through various foods. The razor-sharp blade delivers consummate performance and extraordinary edge retention, while the full/composite tang offers the ultimate in strength and balance.
Constructed using Shun’s ingenious resin-treated ebony black PakkaWood, Shun’s ingenious D-shaped handle is reversed for a natural and secure grip in your left-handed palm. Sanded and buffed to a smooth and glossy finish, the handle offers excellent moisture resistance and durability, completing the elegant and contemporary aesthetic of the Shun Classic 6” Utility Knife with Reverse Grip. For best results, hand wash fine Shun cutlery.
