Created employing the traditional Japanese Kasumi method of knife making, the Shun Premier 6.5” Serrated Utility knife involves over one hundred hand-crafted steps to complete. This narrow and slim blade offers all the functionality of a straight-edge utility knife with the added bonus of serrations, allowing it to better handle small, thick-crusted loaves of bread as well as fruits and vegetables with tougher rinds. Reach for this versatile knife for precision work such as trimming green beans or broccoli, as well as for meats and cheeses while crafting the perfect sandwich.
Knives of the Shun Premier line display a striking handcrafted design and evoke images of knives of ancient Japan. The blade boasts a full thirty-two layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel - sixteen layers of Damascus cladding on each side - supporting the high-performance, stain-resistant VG10 core. The edge is completed with a double bevel for sublime precision and stability. The blade features a hammered “tsuchime” finish that functions like hollow ground indentations, reducing friction and preventing food from sticking to the blade during use. The Shun Premier 6.5” Serrated Utility Knife has a full tang and a razor-sharp edge for impressive strength and balance in addition to marked performance and edge retention.
Constructed using contoured walnut Pakkawood, the handle provides a comfortable grip for both left- and right-handed use. Pakkawood is created using resin-treated wood, providing the stunning natural aesthetic of wood alongside the durability and moisture resistance of polymer plastics. Finished with the Shun logo embossed into the handle’s end, the Shun Premier 6.5” Serrated Utility Knife is a work of beauty and balance. Hand-washing is recommended for enhanced edge retention.
