The multi-functional Shun Classic 6" Ultimate Utility Knife features a cutting edge with a low-frequency serration that makes the knife perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, but it works just as well for chopping and slicing. This knife allows you to use it as a chopping blade with its round belly. It's perfect for spreading mayo on a sandwich with its rounded tip, then the serrations work like a bread knife to cut a sandwich in half without tearing.

The Shun Cutlery Classic knife features a VG-Max "super" steel blade core clad with 34 folded layers per side of stainless Damascus steel. The blade is ground and bead blasted to reveal the beautiful flowing pattern of the Damascus. Each side is sharpened to a 16 degree angle. It features a D-shaped Ebony PakkaWood handle, which is resin-impregnated natural hardwood designed for moisture resistance and longevity. While the D-shaped handle is designed specifically for right-handed use, left-handed users may find it comfortable in hand as well. Shun does sell select left-hand specific handles in the reverse grip.
