(What's this)
Shun Classic 6-inch Utility Knife is what I consider a very Japanese styled knife with its long black rounded handle and its overall sleek shape. It's a 6-inch knife size that I feel personally most comfortable. Utility knives are a little shorter than chef knifes, have a longer handle to control it. This one also isn't as wide as others I've used which is nice. Chef knifes also have more of a curve in the blade for applying a rocking technique when cutting. This utility knife has a slightly less curved blade so less rocking action when cutting and the larger handle allows for gripping firmly. Chef knifes are usually pinched up on the hilt when used for repetitive cutting. The shorter utility knife has more control and agility for certain tasks and with the Shun utility knife's narrower width does these tasks well. I found this knife a pleasure to use. It sliced through smaller cuts of meat easily with its very sharp blade and vegetables were a pleasure to slice and dice. Everyone has their own test and for me its delicate vegetables. I like to use my knife to get a paper thin slice without, it seems, any effort. Shun easily passed this test which made me take notice. I've also used it to trim fat away from some boneless pork chops I was butterflying into cutlets. Here again, no resistance, no effort where I ordinarily use a small filleting knife. This is a keeper for its knife design with that classic look. I enjoy using it.

Holy cow, this knife is sharp!!! This six inch beauty is handcrafted and hand-forged into an amazing sharp knife that works perfectly in the kitchen. It easily slices through meats and veggies. It is very tempting to want to chop with this blade, but please keep in mind that this is a slicing blade! Use a "locomotive" motion to drive the knife forward and down and then draw back towards you...similar motion to locomotive pistons on trains. Highly recommend this knife and I look forward to trying to complete a set!!

This is a very nice well balanced knife that fits well into your hand. The blade is extremely sharp right out of the box so be very careful. It slices through items with an ease and grace not seen in a lot of other blades. We also have the 8" chefs knife which between the both of them will cut about anything. These are knives that with proper care and sharpening that you will have for a long time.

This knife is what you would expect from Shun. It's fairly expensive, but definitely worth the quality if you can afford it. This is the second Shun knife I've had (the other is a chef's knife), and it's certainly nice to have the right tool for the job. This knife is very sharp and, despite the somewhat basic-looking handle, has a nice natural feel to it. As with any good knife, it's not dishwasher safe, but that's a small price to pay for such a nice kitchen tool.

(What's this)
This is without a doubt the best knife we have in the house, and we plan to get the next size larger at our earliest opportunity. Incredibly sharp, perfectly balanced and almost too attractive to use. It really holds an edge and cuts even soft fruits and vegetables as thin as you'd want, and cuts them clean. You have to bear in mind that while it's 'dishwasher safe', an automatic dishwasher WILL dull the blade and eventually ruin the beautiful wooden handle.

This is a really nice line of knives! The handles are a nice shape and the knife itself is very well balanced and not overly heavy. The blade is very fine and sharp. The knife came very nicely packaged and would definitely be suited for gift wrapping. I am very pleased with this knife and plan to buy more sizes in the same line of products. Definitely a good choice!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The versatile mid-sized 6 inch blade is useful for slicing and trimming vegetables, fruits, and smaller cuts of meat—a handy size for sandwich preparation. It’s a good choice for slicing and dicing onions with minimal cell crushing. The light, narrow blade is slightly flexible and easy to maneuver when used for deboning. The blade is clad with layers of 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. This precision knife requires careful handling and maintenance. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation to hand wash and dry promptly after use. The sharp 16 degree edge makes slicing feel effortless, but may chip if used for hard chopping. The thin tip may bend if excessive lateral force is applied. Choose a thicker blade for heavy duty cutting. The blade core is VG-MAX, a proprietary Shun alloy described as an improvement over earlier production VG-10 with more corrosion resistance, strength, and better cutting performance. Both are premium alloys with high hardness and excellent edge retention but more brittle and prone to chipping than softer steels. Hone and sharpen with great care. Initial performance is excellent. It’s too soon to assess durability over time. Certified by NSF (National Sanitary Foundation) to meet the cleanability standards for use in commercial kitchens. Lifetime limited warranty and sharpening service for original registered owner. Made in Seti, Japan.

Crazy sharp knife. The handle can be a little awkward but it is incredibly sharp. I got this to replace a cheaper knife that I had been using for a long time and finally died. We have to chop all kinds of fruit for my meals and you literally just lay it on the item and drag it back and forth and it sinks right through. I have other knives that a plenty expensive but not nearly this sharp. So far I really like it.

My wife and I are slowly replacing our variety of kitchen knives with Shun knives. In our opinion Shun makes the best quality knives when it comes to value for your money. The 6” Classic Chef’s knife is a mainstay for all kitchens and will likely be used on a daily basis. The knife is extremely sharp making food preparation efficient whether you are slicing a tomato (or any vegetable) to butterflying a steak. With proper use and care, there is no reason why this knife won’t last a lifetime.

This is a beautiful knife. It is very sharp and light, and it is also well balanced. I would say it's an excellent all purpose knife. The grain like etchings on the blade give this knife a beautiful look. Because it is so thin, I can easy slice through fruits, vegetables or meats. I can slice tomatoes and onions razor thin with ease. This is a knife you're going to want to take care of with a nice knife block and maybe some camellia knife oil to help keep it sharper longer and prevent rust. I personally am fascinated with Japanese culture and cuisine, so Im delighted to have such a beautiful authentic Japanese knife in my kitchen. This knife would make an excellent gift for cooks of all levels. Whether it's for the gourmet chef in your life or some one you know who would appreciate their time in the kitchen made a lot easier and enjoyable by a beautiful high quality knife. You really don't know how much of a difference a good knife can make until you use one.
