Features

  • Dual core construction; 71 alternating micro-layers of VG10 and VG2, high-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel extend all the way to the edge
  • Layers are welded together and fold-forged to give a finer grain to the steel and to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge
  • Traditional Japanese ebony PakkaWood octagon-shaped handle provide a comfortable and secure grip
  • Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily
  • The hand-sharpened 16° double-bevel blade (on each side) is light and thin; 60-61 Rockwell Hardness
  • Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty; includes wooden saya sheath

Description

The Shun Dual Core Utility Knife is ideal for trimming green beans, broccoli, and other jobs that require precision. The razor-sharp edge is also perfect for slicing meats, cheeses, tomatoes, and more, which is why this style of knife is sometimes called a sandwich knife. The Shun Dual Core series features a Damascus blade made from two premium-quality, high-carbon stainless steels. 71 alternating micro-layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels are roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the herringbone pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge. During normal use, the two steels will wear at different rates creating micro serrations along the edge so that the Dual Core's extremely sharp edge feels sharp longer. Etched laminations in the blade reduce drag, helping food release from the blade and gliding through each cut quickly and easily. Dual Core blades are thin, light, and strong. Traditional Japanese octagon-shaped handles in ebony PakkaWood provide a comfortable and secure grip to complete the look of these beautiful knives.

    Arrived dull

    Nice knife, and I like the size and shape, but unlike the other Shuns I ordered at the same time, this one arrived dull, at least it won’t cut a tomato. Given the cost, that’s really unacceptable. Not quite sure what to do about it. It’s not defective, but geez.
