Sized just right between a chef's knife and paring knife, the razor-sharp precision and complete cutting control of the Shun Premier 6 1/2" Utility Knife offers you the best in trimming, slicing and dicing produce and smaller meats. Indispensible for your kitchen, the Shun Premier utility knife quickly chops onions, dices zucchini and minces garlic and herbs. The Shun proprietary VG-MAX core blade with 68 outer layers (34 per side) of stainless-steel holds an incredibly sharp edge longer. The hammered tsuchime finish features a hollow-ground pattern that reduces drag and prevents foods from sticking to the blade. Shun Premier knives are stain- and rust-resistant with a razor-sharp beveled edge for superior cutting performance. The walnut PakkaWood handle is infused with a water-resistant resin and contours to comfortably nestle in the hand. Beautiful Shun utility knives take at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete and resemble hand-forged knives of ancient Japan.

The preeminent blade manufacturer in Japan, Shun introduced its exquisitely styled and exceptionally sharp Japanese-style knives to American kitchens in 2002. Compared to European and Western knives, the Shun Premier utility knife is less bulky with the hand-hammered, thinner blade honed to superior sharpness. Shun Premier knives reflect Shun's renowned craftsmanship and centuries-old Japanese knife making traditions.
