Constructed using an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 6” Utility Knife is crafted with traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. Perfect for various precision tasks around the kitchen, the blade offers a narrow and straight design, with a length that falls between a paring knife and a chef’s knife. Trim small and medium vegetables such as broccoli and green beans confidently with this fine blade. A handy tool when putting sandwiches together, this exceptional piece of cutlery excels with meats, cheeses, as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables.
The 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 a lovely rippled pattern upon the blade and allows the blade to more easily glide through foods. The razor-sharp blade delivers sublime performance and exceptional edge retention, while the full/composite tang offers the ultimate in strength and balance.
Crafted using Shun’s proprietary resin-treated ebony-black PakkaWood, Shun’s ingenious D-shaped handle fits securely in your palm. Sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy appearance, the handle provides superior moisture resistance and durability, completing the Shun Classic 6” Utility Knife’s elegant and contemporary aesthetic. For best results, hand wash all your fine Shun cutlery.
