Utility knives are mid-sized knives that are in between a chef’s knife and paring knife. They’re great when used as a general-purpose tool for everyday, mid-sized tasks.

This 6" Ultimate Utility Knife from Shun's Classic line is no ordinary Utility Knife because it's cutting edge has a low-frequency serration and the blade is broad with a rounded tip and curved belly. It has been regarded as the ultimate sandwich knife because the wavy serrated edge gives this knife the power to slice delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes, while also having the ability to cut through a sandwich without tearing the bread. The broad belly and rounded tip make this knife a great spreader for condiments like mayonnaise as well. This knife may take some getting used to but with it's multi-functionality, it could be the knife you end up reaching for the most.

The 6" Ultimate Utility Knife from Shun’s Classic line is simple, beautiful and functional, making it the perfect line for beginners and professionals alike. High-performance VG-MAX Steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with layers of Damascus stainless steel. It is then ground and bead-blasted to reveal the beautiful flowing pattern of the layered steel.

The Pakkawood used in the handle is saturated with resin to make it moisture resistant, strong and durable. The handle has a D-shape to mirror your palm, ensuring both a secure and comfortable grip.

With the specific materials chosen and at least 100 handcrafted steps to make each knife, the Shun Classic line has sharp blades, is easy to maintain and is corrosion resistant. This knife is sure to be a reliable workhorse in the kitchen if properly maintained.

Basic Knife Care:

*Not dishwasher safe. Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Use a soft sponge to wash the blade. Do not use abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as they can damage the blade.

Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on glass, marble, slate, a plate, china or anything harder than steel. Bamboo is not recommended as it is very hard and dulls knives quickly.

Store knives separate from each other in a way that they will not knock into each other.

Use a ceramic honing rod or leather strop for the edge maintenance. Never use a coarse steel sharpening rod or diamond rod. Do not use a wheel sharpener or sharpening tools. Always sharpen by hand on waterstones.
