Description: Utility knives are one of the primary knives used in the kitchen. They are a great choice for slicing fruits and meats. The slender blade makes it very useful and versatile. Shun has taken their Premier utility knife one step further by serrating the edge near the tip and heel and leaving a fine edge in the middle. This allows the knife to effortlessly slice through foods like tomatoes that have a tougher or more resilient exterior and a tender interior. The Shun Premier utility knife has been inverse serrated. This serration, which is perfect for cutting into the slippery skins of tomatoes, does not tear as would a classic serration. This knife is also great for tasks such as slicing mushrooms and other vegetables. These serrations glide through the exterior with ease while the fine edge cuts through the softer interior. The combination of serrated and fine edge means you get the perfect slice no matter what you're cutting with no tearing or squashing.
Handcrafted by expert artisans in Seki City, Japan, Shun Premier knives combine elegance and functionality. A stainless steel VG-10 center core (Jigane) is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side. VG-10 "super steel" is composed of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon and vanadium, resulting in a long-lasting, high-performance edge with easy maintenance. The hand-hammered finish (known as 'tsuchime' in Japanese) lends not only to the beauty, but reduces knife-drag and prevents food from sticking to the blade. The ultra-thin cutting edge has an exceptional edge. The premium walnut toned pakkawood handle nestles comfortably into the curves of the palm and allows for a variety of comfortable and secure grips. Hand wash recommended.
