The Shun Sora 6-inch Utility Knife is perfect for many small tasks that require precise cuts. It's versatile enough to peel an onion in-hand, and then slice it on a board. The very nimble 6" Utility is between a chef's knife and a paring knife - featuring a narrow, straight blade with a slightly curved belly ideal for moderate rocking cuts. Sometimes called a sandwich knife, the utility knife works well on virtually everything between the bread of a sandwich - from thin-skinned vegetables to meats and cheeses.
Honoring the traditional, high-end Japanese knifemaking technique of san mai, the Shun Sora Utility Knife features a VG10 "super steel" razor-sharp 16-degree double-bevel edge blade clad with a single layer of stainless steel on each side. The Sora's VG10 san mai and stainless blade are laser cut and fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, permanently braze welded to provide performance and beauty. The blade is finished with bead blasting to highlight the san mai edge and echo the line of the braze welding.
Each Shun Sora knife handle is made of textured TPE polymer to provide excellent grip and balance without sacrificing ease of maintenance. The stainless steel Shun logo on the handle further enhances the balance of this beautiful knife.
