The master utility knife from the Shun Classic Blonde collection combines features of both a utility knife and a chef's knife. The blade is longer and wider than a traditional utility knife, while the kiritsuke-style tip allows this knife to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. Use it for dicing produce, mincing herbs, slicing meat, and a multitude of other prep tasks. This master utility knife is ideal for when you don't want to switch back and forth between a utility knife and a chef's knife as you work.
The high performance Damascus-clad blade is made from a VG-MAX steel core with 34 layers of steel on each side. The distinctive wavy pattern is formed as the blade is ground and bead-blasted from the spine to the razor-sharp edge, hand-sharpened to a 16-degree cutting angle. VG-MAX stainless steel is proprietary to Shun. It includes a higher percentage of carbon for greater strength and durability. This alloy combines multiple other metals, including chromium, cobalt, vanadium, molybdenum and tungsten, to further improve wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and strength. Shun Classic Blonde knife blades are stronger, more durable, and stay sharper longer. The blonde PakkaWood handle is made from genuine hardwood and resin. The addition of resin makes the wood moisture-resistant, strong, and durable. The D-shape of the handle is designed to fit comfortably in your hand.
The Shun Classic Blonde collection offers a wide assortment of traditional and modern blade shapes, making these knives a perfect fit for any kitchen. Each knife in the Shun Classic Blonde Collection boasts all of the essential features that make Shun a top choice of professional chefs.
