You'll love using Shun Classic utility knives when you're cutting anything that's too small for a chef's knife. A Shun utility knife is great for preparing fruit, vegetables, or sandwiches. Also, using them is easy because of their ergonomic handles and balanced weight. Even if you use them every day, you won't have to sharpen them often because they keep an edge for a long time. This is because these knives from Shun have an exceptionally hard steel interior layer. They will last for a long time because their outer layers are more flexible and stain-resistant. These knives feature Shun's ebony-black PakkaWood handles. The beautiful Damascus blade finish is a result of their layered construction.
