Using traditional Japanese knife-making techniques, the Shun Classic 6” Serrated Utility Knife with Reverse Grip is constructed beginning with an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel. Often referred to as a tomato knife, this serrated blade excels at various precision tasks around the kitchen. The blade’s narrow and slim design offers a length falling between that of a paring knife and a chef’s knife. Utilize this serrated blade for tomatoes, small loaves of bread, rolls, sandwiches, and a variety of vegetables and fruits with a thick crust or tough rind best broken with a serrated blade.
With each side of its hard core supported by 16 layers of Damascus cladding, the blade is masterfully formed utilizing the Kasumi blade-making method. The process creates a mesmerizing rippled pattern along the blade and allows the blade to more easily slice and glide through foods. The razor-sharp blade offers exceptional performance and remarkable edge retention, while the full, composite tang delivers supreme strength and balance.
Fabricated from resin-treated hardwood, Shun’s ebony-black PakkaWood is used to create the handle. Reversed for a more natural grip for left-handed use, the innovative D-shaped Shun handle feels natural and secure as it fits in your palm. The handle is sanded and buffed to a smooth, glossy finish that provides superior moisture resistance and durability. The Shun Classic 6” Serrated Utility Knife with Reverse Grip offers a refined, contemporary aesthetic and should be hand-washed for better edge retention.
