This addition to the Shun Classic Series can be defined as a real all around workhorse for the kitchen. The 6" Ultimate Utility is perfect for cutting cake and breads without crumbs - works wonders on bagels. Great for spreading frosting on a cake, and is exactly the length of a mayonnaise jar to use as the ultimate sandwich knife. Provides ultimate control for cutting delicate pastry such as phyllo and pie dough. Perfect for removing skin from fish as well as separating a rack of lamb. The Shun Ultimate Utility Knife, nicknamed U2, is the best for slicing smooth skin vegetables such as tomatoes and eggplant. In addition to all the above tasks, the Ultimate Utility Knife offers the same unique "D" shaped ergonomic handle, asymmetric bolster for proper finger placement and superior blade as the entire line of Shun Classic.
This stunningly beautiful line of Shun Classic cutlery, made in Japan by KAI (Kershaw Cutlery), features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times. The black PakkaWood® handles provide the beauty of genuine wood, but-since the wood is impregnated with a waterproof resin-the handles are as durable as plastic and dishwasher safe, too.
