One of the best knives in our kitchen! As you can see in the picture this is a beautiful knife and when you examine it, it's clear how well it is made and finished. I love how it is weighted. The handle is the heaviest part and allows the knife to sit comfortably in your hand during use. It cuts smoothly and easily. The company also provides some instructions for the proper cutting technique.

My wife loves to cook and has always bought the best cookware and utensils that we could afford without breaking the bank. When she decided that we needed a good, all around knife, I decided to get this Shun Classic 6 Inch knife for her. She is so amazed at the quality of this knife that she’s picking out more Shun knives for us to get. Rarely does she call me into the kitchen to see how good something works, but she had me try this knife for myself. I cut everything from bread, the apples and onions to cheeses and even a think steak. I wouldn’t use this on bones or as a chopping knife, but it is great for just about any other food. These knives you see on TV that are used to cut through a can and then slice a tomato with ease are Too unbelievable. THIS knife cuts and cuts well. Buy Shun knives with confidence.

This Shun utility knife is so awesome and looks like a piece of art. This knife is hand crafted and takes many steps to make, you can see the high quality of this knife. It's very lite weight and the serrated blade edge is razor sharp, slices through vegetables sandwiches etc.with no effort. You can sharpen with Honing steels or sharpening stones. It's made of advanced forged steel, Damascus clad blade and edge retention, and the handle in ebony, which is very comfortable is made of Pakkawood. It is recommended that you hand hand wash and dry. I will be ordering more knives from Shun in the future and I highly recommend.

This is a fantastic ultimate utility knife with a razor sharp blade.. This knife is not only good looking but has a good feel in the hand and is very balanced and easy to use. This is now our go to knife for slicing and dicing from vegetables to fruits and is a great knife for making all kinds of sandwiches. This knife is also good for the cheese and cracker plate.

Useful for every step of sandwich preparation from slicing bread, tomatoes, and meats to scooping and applying mayo or other spreads. The blade has a sharp single bevel 16 degree edge with wavy serrations for easy precise slicing. The core is VG-MAX, a proprietary Shun alloy with exceptional hardness and edge retention but more brittle and prone to chipping than softer steels. Designed for slicing, not hard chopping. The blade is clad with Damascus pattern stainless steel for attractive appearance. The black handle is made of PakkaWood®, a trade mark name for wood veneer impregnated with resin for durability. Certified by NSF (National Sanitary Foundation) to meet the cleanability standards for use in commercial kitchens.
This precision knife requires careful handling and maintenance. Hone on the bevel side with a sharpener designed for a serrated knife. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation to hand wash and dry after use. Lifetime limited warranty and sharpening for original registered owner. Made in Seti, Japan.
