Offering an exquisitely hard micro-carbide steel core, the Shun Reserve 6" Serrated Utility Knife is created using the traditional Japanese Kasumi technique of knife-making. Frequently referred to as a tomato knife, this lovely blade excels at various precision tasks all around the kitchen. The length of this narrow and slim blade falls between that of a chef’s knife and a paring knife, for adept management of medium-sized chores of all kinds. This serrated blade is ideal for tomatoes, small bread loaves, sandwiches, salami, hard cheeses and many vegetables and fruits with thicker skins, tough rinds and more delicate interiors.
Sixteen layers of shiny nickel silver stainless support the Shun Reserve 6" Serrated Utility Knife’s strong, very fine-grained SG2 steel core. Holding a superbly fine edge and providing unparalleled edge retention, the resulting blade is sharpened to a 16˚ flat ground cutting angle on each side. With perfect Western-style balance, the Shun Reserve 6" Serrated Utility Knife features a full-tang and heftier blade, delivering both precision and power while displaying its gracefully beautiful appearance.
Constructed from handsome crimson-and-charcoal PakkaWood, Shun’s resin-treated hardwood, the handle of a Shun Reserve knife is a combination of natural beauty and exceptional durability. With moisture resistance and enduring strength, the contoured handle is assembled using triple rivets for security, and provides an easy, comfortable grip whether wielded left- or right-handed. For ideal edge retention, hand-washing the Shun Reserve 6" Serrated Utility Knife is recommended.
