This master utility knife from the Shun Narukami 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 composite blade consists of a Blue II carbon steel cutting core with single-layer san mai stainless steel cladding. Carbon steel offers professional performance, superior edge-holding, and ease of sharpening. The bead-blasted stainless steel cladding offers ease of maintenance and hides scratches. Over time, the edge will darken and form a patina. Full tang construction offers strength and balance. The linen Micarta knife handle is riveted and contoured for a comfortable grip. Hand wash and dry thoroughly immediately after use.
"Narukami" means thunderbolt in Japanese. The Shun Narukami collection is striking, designed for professional chefs and anyone who appreciates the performance of carbon steel cutlery.
