The Shun Classic Utility Knife is an extremely handy all purpose knife suited to general food preparation of smaller food items.

In size, the Shun Classic Utility Knife is between a chefs knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It is perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order.

All Shun Classic knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.

  • Cutting Edge: Hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade
  • Steel: Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core, 34 layers each side (69 total including core) stainless steel Damascus cladding
  • Hardness: 60 HRC
  • Blade Length: 15cm
  • Handle: D-shaped ebony PakkaWood®

Cleaning.
As with any lifetime investment, it is important to take the best care possible in order to prolong the life of your knife. Shun recommends that you protect your investment by hand-washing your blades with gentle dish soap. Do not use soaps with citrus extracts; they can promote rust. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Let the knives air dry for a few minutes before returning them to storage.

Sharpening.
In order to maximise the life of the blade, regular honing with a Shun Honing Steel will be necessary. Weekly honing will extend the time between sharpening significantly. When the time comes to sharpen these premium blades, we recommend using a Shun Whetstone, the Shun Electric Knife Sharpener (specifically designed to sharpen Shun’s 16° blade angle), or sending your knives to a professional sharpener.
