The Master Utility is designed to serve you high performance and versatility in the kitchen with the nimble nature of a utility knife and the all-around usefulness of a chef’s knife. With a longer and taller blade than the standard utility knife, you can deftly handle a wide array of food prep in a more compact and agile form than a full-size chef’s knife. The blade is designed with a tall heel and slightly curved belly to enable a proper rocking motion when mincing and dicing herbs, spices, and more. The tip of the blade is formed similarly to a kiritsuke for increased durability. The extended handle provides room for a comfortable and secure grip which is essential to give you confidence and control over your blade.
The Shun Classic Utility Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives’ beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun’s proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
