Also called a tomato knife, the Shun Classic Serrated Utility knife is a blade with many uses. In size, the Utility knife is between the Chef's knife and the Paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. The serrated edge makes it ideal for slicing foods with somewhat tough skins and soft interiors—such as tomatoes. But it's also perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming vegetables and slicing. Shun Classic's tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Behind the knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
