Classic Blonde // Utility Knife // 6”
The Shun Classic Blonde 6" Utility Knife is multipurpose and very, very handy. Between a chef's knife and a paring knife in size, the utility knife has a narrow, straight blade that's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed. Trimming green beans, cutting cauliflower florets, cutting sandwiches in half—all are tasks well suited to the 6" Utility 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. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.
The Shun Classic Blonde series features 69-layer Damascus-clad blades and PakkaWood handles in a light and beautiful natural wood tone. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is top function. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel forms the cutting core of the blade and holds its razor-sharp edge longer. The core is clad with 68 micro layers of Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that is ultra-sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as simply magnificent to behold.

Please Note: It is important to protect your knives by hand washing your knives with gentle dish soap. Do not use soaps with citrus extracts or bleach; they can promote rust. Rinse and towel dry immediately. Take extra time to get ALL of the water/moisture off of the sharp cutting edge. It is best to store your Shun cutlery in a wooden block, in-drawer knife tray, sheath, or knife case. Do not store your knives unsheathed in a drawer.
