Additional Information
Perfect for cutting tasks that are too big for a paring knife but require more precision than a chef’s knife offers, this utility knife is ideal for everything from cutting tomatoes and dicing garlic to slicing sandwiches.

Melding the sharpness of carbon steel with the corrosion resistance and easy maintenance of stainless steel, Shun Blue represents a leap forward in knife technology. Each painstakingly crafted blade features a core of blue steel—a fine-grained carbon steel known for taking and retaining an extremely sharp edge—sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. This construction results in a knife that’s easy to care for, yet blazingly sharp.
