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.
The Shun Premier Ultimate Utility Knife 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.
