Description

Description

It looks unusual, but that's just because it's unusually useful. The cutting edge of the Shun Premier Ultimate Utility's has a low-frequency serration that makes this knife perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, but it works just as well for chopping and slicing. The knife's curved belly enables you to rock it on the cutting board, while the wide blade with its rounded tip also makes it great for spreading mayo on a sandwich. When you're ready to cut the sandwich in half, the gentle serrations glide through without tearing. It may not look traditional, but the Shun Premier 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 Premier Ultimate Utility is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
