SpecialValueBuy The serrated edge of this knife makes it ideal for slicing foods with somewhat tough skins and soft interiors—such as tomatoes. But it’s also perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, like trimming vegetables and slicing.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

Shun’s VG-MAX steel core—known for its incredible edge retention—is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. 6" blade. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan.

Free sharpening on all Shun cutlery for as long as you own it. Click for details
 
VG-MAX “SUPER STEEL” CORE The higher density of VG-MAX steel allows it to be tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 61 and still have the flexibility and strength to take and keep a perfect edge. VG-MAX’s natural tendency is to remain straight and true. When blade is used, the edge automatically straightens out and stays sharp longer.

METICULOUSLY CRAFTED Each Shun Classic knife is constructed using the kasumi method, a traditional Japanese process used to create samurai swords. Sixteen layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel are pounded to 3/1000ths of an inch, then clad on each side of the VG-MAX core. This 32-layer forged construction gives the blade strength, stain resistance, incredible cutting performance, and an elegant Damascus pattern unique to each knife.

RAZOR-SHARP BLADE With a cutting edge ground to a 16° angle on each side, this is one of the sharpest knives you’ll ever find. Plus, the exotic Japanese steels used in the cutting core ensure that blade holds its ultra-sharp edge without the need for excessive re-sharpening.

USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN Comfortable D-shaped handle and perfectly balanced blade offer precise control and reduce fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks. Handle is made of moisture-resistant pakkawood—a fused blend of hardwood veneers and phenolic resin.

PERFECT SLICES EVERY TIME The serrated edge of this knife makes it ideal for slicing foods with somewhat tough skins and soft interiors—such as tomatoes. But it’s also perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, like trimming vegetables and slicing.

Best all around utility knife
I have owned this knife for probably six years, and I just bought another one for my mom. I routinely buy this knife and the small 6 inch ""mini-cleaver"" by Shun as wedding presents. Why? Because with those two knives, you don't need any others.

This knife has serrations which make it perfect for fast, easy, no-pressure slicing of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, cantaloups, rolls, etc, and it is great for peeling and segmenting citrus. It's long enough that it slices a sandwich and short enough to cut the peel off an orange. My mother has a painful nerve condition in her hands and she reports a lot less pain using this knife because it requires so little force to use. The blade stays sharp, like most Shun knives will for years, the serrations give it some ""grip"" and the handle feels right in your hand when you use it. The serrations conveniently seem to reduce your chance of cutting yourself, too, as you have some warning from the teeth before you're about to slice into your finger.

It's a precision tool and does require just a little consideration. Like any kitchen knife you care about, you can't run it through the dishwasher. Since it has a wooden handle, you shouldn't leave it laying in water, and it will rust-spot should water stay on the blade for a long time (think multiple days - and the rust spots will scrub off with a little effort and the scratchy side of the sponge). Otherwise I can't think of anything at all negative.

I cannot say enough good things about this knife. It's great, you won't be sorry

"You say tomato, I say tomatoe"
Years ago I had a Henckels tomato knife that was much smaller. It cut a tomato, but not much else. Over the past few years, I have been replacing my first loves with Shun knives because the Shun D handle fits my hands and the blades are much sharper.

This a great sandwich building knife. Love the sharp point for coring tomatoes and it is gentle enough to shred lettuces and strong enough to cut through the sandwich of different densities: think: BLTs or ham and swiss. Lovely addition to my addiction
