Product Description

Add one of the top 3 must-have kitchen knives to your collection with the Shun Classic 6-inch Utility Knife. In between a chef’s knife and a paring knife with a narrow, straighter blade, this cooking knife is an ideal tool for small tasks where precise cuts are needed such as trimming broccoli, green beans or other small vegetables. They’re also called sandwich knives because they work well for almost every task involved in making a sandwich – from cutting thin-skinned vegetables like tomatoes to preparing meats and cheeses. The Classic Utility Knife is constructed with Shun’s proprietary VG-Max cutting core with 68 layers of stainless Damascus cladding for a strong, corrosion-resistant, stain-resistant, razor-sharp 16-degree edge that glides through food. The D-shaped, ebony-finished Pakkawood handle is durable, beautiful, comfortable for both left- and right-handed users, and doesn’t harbor bacteria. In Japan, the blade is more than a tool – it’s a tradition. Housed in Seki City, the heart of the Japanese cutlery industry, Shun Fine Cutlery is dedicated to maintaining this ancient tradition. Each knife is handcrafted by highly skilled artisans to produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty. We also leverage modern, premium materials and state-of-the-art technology to provide Shun quality to millions of professional chefs and avid home cooks throughout the world.

A member of the stylish Shun Classic line, this multipurpose utility knife comfortably handles any small-scale kitchen cutting need from chopping to peeling and slicing. The utility knifes compact size makes it easy to handle and thus a favorite among home and professional chefs. The tool features a narrow sloping blade measuring 6 inches in length with a piercing tip.

Leveraging a 90-year history of superior workmanship, Shun knives are precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Using technologically advanced processes, a VG-10 “super steel” core is clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus-look blade. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knifes aesthetic appeal, it also prevents morsels from sticking and avoids crushing or damaging foods. Forming a comfortable D-shaped hold, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin comprise the unique ebony Pakkawood handle. A traditionally offset stainless-steel bolster protects knuckles while a steel end-cap finishes the piece. Although dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. This product includes a lifetime warranty. — Amy Arnold
