Shun Cutlery is named after the Japanese word for the precise moment of the year at which any given food is at the peak of perfection. This dedication to precision and perfection is reflected in every inch of Shun’s Classic 6-Inch Utility Knife.
At six inches in length, the Classic 6-Inch Utility Knife finds the ideal sweet spot between the traditional chef’s knife and the traditional paring knife, but features a blade that is narrower and straighter than both. Its unique dimensions and double-bevel blade make this the tool to grab for jobs that require precision. Use it for everything from peeling an onion to slicing a tomato to trimming broccoli florets. With its slightly curved belly, it also allows cooks to prep food using moderate rocking cuts. Deigned to look as great as it works, the Classic 6-Inch Utility Knife features exquisite Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles.
