Made in Japan.
The Shun Classic Ultimate Utility knife features a cutting edge that combines a low-frequency serration at the tip with by a smooth edge at the back. This combination makes the knife perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, as well as chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing. 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 use the serrated part of the 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.
Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Behind the knives’ beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun’s VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, creating a woodgrain pattern that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion-resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
