The Shun Classic Ultimate Utility Knife features a low-frequency serration that makes this perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables. The broad blade and curved belly allow to rock the knife on the cutting board. The wide blade with its rounded tip also makes it a great knife for spreading mayo on a sandwich, then the serrations work like a bread knife to cut the sandwich in half without tearing.<br /><br />The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades with D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The razor-sharp blades offer top performance. Shun’s proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel provides incredible edge retention.
