AN AMAZINGLY VERSATILE KNIFE
The Shun Classic Ultimate Utility Knife's cutting edge has a low-frequency serration that makes the knife perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables. The Ultimate Utility Knife has a broad blade and a curved belly, allowing you to rock the knife on the cutting board. The wide blade with its rounded tip also makes it a great knife for spreading mayo on a sandwich, then the serrations work like a bread knife to cut the sandwich in half without tearing. It may not look traditional, but the Shun Classic Ultimate Utility Knife is about performance where it counts—in your kitchen. Try it and you'll be amazed at how often you'll find yourself reaching for this multi-function knife.
The Shun Classic Ultimate Utility Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
