Shun Dual Core 6" Utility/Butcher Knife

SKU: SKVG0019

MSRP: $325.00

The Shun Dual Core 6-inch Utility/Butcher Knife is a beautiful, razor-sharp, extremely functional knife that is the perfect length for efficient butchery. It can be used to bone, trim and portion meat. In addition, its design makes it ideal for anything you'd do with a standard utility knife - from trimming vegetables to slicing salami.

Until now, it was considered almost impossible to create layered Damascus from two premium-quality stainless steels. But what was impossible is now a reality with the Shun Dual Core series that features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. Seventy-one alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Core's extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.

Features of the Shun Dual Core 6" Utility / Butcher Knife:

  • Dual core construction with 71 alternating micro-layers of stainless steel that extend all the way to the edge
  • Ebony PakkaWood handle
  • Hand-sharpened 16-degree double-bevel blade edge (32-degree comprehensive)
  • Steel: High-carbon, high-chromium VG10 & VG2
  • Wooden saya (sheath)
  • Rabbet tang
  • Handcrafted in Japan


Blade Length:
6 inches
