Shun Classic Dual-Density Utility Knife
This innovative knife is one of the most versatile in the kitchen, thanks to a unique dual-frequency serrated blade that cuts easily through crusts of bread or soft foods like tomatoes. It's handcrafted in Japan by Shun, whose exceptional craftsmanship reflects a centuries-old tradition of Japanese knife making.
- VG-10 “super steel” blade is clad on each side with 16 microthin layers of high-carbon steel, creating a variegated look reminiscent of a Damascus-style blade.
- The unique combination of low- and high-frequency serrations guarantees unsurpassed performance.
- Low-frequency serrations help minimize resistance between blade and cutting board.
- High-frequency serrations reduce tearing when cutting soft-skinned foods (like tomatoes) or slicing through hard crusts.
- Durable PakkaWood handle resists moisture and has a D shape, to sit comfortably in the hand.
- NSF-certified knife meets the high-level hygiene standards for professional kitchens.
- A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

SUPER sharp!My husband & I debated for awhile as to whether or not to purchase this knife because of the cost. However, we both love to cook & have invested in copper cookware & Wusthof knives, so we decided to go for it. Wow!!! This knife slices through bagels, bread, tomatoes (& even Velveeta!) with ease! LOVE IT! It's a great addition to our kitchen!

Knife of many usesI grab this knife for many uses, particularly cutting crusty bread and slicing tomatoes. Have also given it to both adult (and foodie) daughters. Very versatile!

The Best KnifeThis is a fabulous knife, why didn't I buy before?! I can't say enough good about the knife, unfortunately it is very expensive but worth every penny!

Great overall kitchen knifeGreat knife; use it every morning making lunches for my family. I used to use the smaller Shun utility knife, which is still great for smaller kitchen tasks such as slicing tomatoes, but the Shun Classic Dual Density is bigger and sharper and slices through thick sandwiches and bread with ease.
