Features

  • Aogami #2 blue carbon steel takes a fine edge, holds it for a long time and sharpens more easily than stainless steel
  • Stainless steel cladding makes this knife easier to care for because only a small portion of the carbon steel core is exposed along the edge
  • Bead-blasted finish on the cladding enhances food release
  • Contoured full-tang riveted moisture-resistant micarta handle with a smooth transition to the blade is comfortable and more durable than wood
  • 61-62 Rockwell Hardness; Hand-sharpened double-bevel 16° edge angle (each side)
  • Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty
  • Wash and dry by hand only. The area near the edge is carbon steel and will rust if not cared for properly. This area will darken and form a beautiful patina over time.

Description

The Shun Narukami Blue #2 Carbon Steel 6.5" Master Utility Knife combines the nimbleness of a utility knife with the do-it-all capabilities of a chef's knife. The blade is slightly longer and significantly wider, so you can easily accomplish a wide range of food preparation tasks while enjoying the ease of use and agility of a compact knife. Extra width at the heel and a slightly curved belly enables rocking cuts to easily mince herbs and spices. A larger handle gives you a secure, comfortable, and confident grip as you work. The down-turned tip (similar to a Kiritsuke) is extra durable. Slice, dice, shred, or portion; you can do it all with this one very beautiful, very functional, kitchen knife.

For the love of carbon steel, Shun Narukami looks sharp and sharpens easily. Bead-blasted stainless steel cladding helps prevent corrosion on the carbon steel core, hides scratches, and helps with food release. Full-tang construction, and micarta handles, will make Shun Narukami your go-to for many culinary creations. Shun Narukami is a simple carbon steel alloy that provides excellent edge retention and toughness, and can be re-sharpened easily. Yet, like all carbon steels, Shun Narukami requires additional care. Cleaning and drying immediately is key. Over time, the edge will darken, developing a patina which, when formed, will also help protect the edge. Even after hours of food prep, resharpening is a breeze, if it needs it. This is why professional chefs prefer carbon steel. If you love carbon steel, you're going to love Shun Narukami.
