This utility knife from the Shun Sora collection combines features of both a paring knife and a chef's knife. The narrow, straight blade and sharp tip allow 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 utility knife is ideal for when you don't want to switch back and forth between a paring knife and a chef's knife as you work.
The composite steel blade consists of a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. VG10 stainless steel includes vanadium for wear resistance and cobalt for strength and hardness. The two blade sections are laser cut and welded together, with the superior VG10 steel along the cutting edge. The edge is hand-sharpened to a razor-sharp 16-degree cutting angle. The knife handle is made from a polymer blend for a contemporary look and secure grip.
The Shun Sora collection is affordable yet beautiful, combining modern design with Japanese tradition. Each knife in the Shun Sora collection boasts all of the essential features that make Shun a top choice of professional chefs.
