Description: A utility knife is the third member of the kitchen knife trifecta. In size, itís between a chefís knife and a paring knife, making it perfect for all those in-between tasks. For trimming green beans, broccoli, and other jobs where you need precision, your utility knife is an excellent choice. Any time a paring knife seems like too little and a chefís knife too much, reach for a utility knife. The Shun Dual Core Utility Knife (VG0019) offers a razor-sharp 6-in. edge that is also perfect for slicing meats, cheeses, tomatoes, and more, which is why this style of knife is sometimes called a sandwich knife.
The Shun Dual Core series features a damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. Seventy-one alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Coreís extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong.
Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.
Includes traditional wood saya for storage and transport.
