The Shun Premier 6-inch U2 Ultimate Utility Knife is designed 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 mayonnaise on a sandwich. When you're ready to cut the sandwich in half, the gentle serrations glide through without tearing.
Shun pronounced "shoon" in Japanese, means "at the peak of perfection". Each knife is handmade by skilled specialists and requires at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete one knife. Shun Premier knives feature a VG-10 super steel core encased with a Damascus clad 32-layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel, 16-layers on each side. The Damascus steel supports and protects the core, which provides toughness, and is stain resistant. The hammered tsuchime design acts as a hollow-ground and releases the food easily from the blade when slicing. Each Shun knife provides a Japanese blade angle of 16°. You will enjoy the ease of cutting the thinnest slices without bruising or tearing the most delicate foods while prepping ensuring the ingredients to stay intact, retain flavor, and stay fresh. The blade is complimented by a D-shaped traditional Japanese handle, made out of walnut stained PakkaWood. Shun offers a full assortment, so you will always find the right knife for the task. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty. Handwashing is recommended.
