Rated 5 out of 5 by ENK_West from Cuts tomatoes like a dream! I love this knife. I used it for the first time yesterday on tomatoes. It was as if I was cutting through butter. No resistance at all to the tomato skin and I was able to cut the slices very thin. I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking for an knife that will be their go to tool in the kitchen.Date published: 2019-03-24Rated 5 out of 5 by CulinaryCailliers from A great little utility knife We purchased 9 different Shun knives and have been satisfied with all of them. Shun makes a care kit for their knives (WS sells it) and it extends the lives of the knives. WS will sharpen them for you but you can send them to Shun and they will sharpen for free and do any repair work if needed. We use this knife for small breads and cheeses and it does a great job.Date published: 2017-06-14Rated 4 out of 5 by miguele3 from A favorite knife Shun is a high quality knife company. The Utility knife is an affordable knife. You use it as they describe. I tend not to use if for slicing vegetables because I like chef knives for this purpose due to length and for using proper chopping technique. I do like it a lot for cutting through baguettes and general cutting.Date published: 2013-11-17Rated 5 out of 5 by TxGirl212 from My favorite knife This is the best knife! Love it for bread, tomatoes, and cheese. Cuts like a pro.Date published: 2013-09-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Aussielovesshun from Great All Round Knife Great all round knife for bread, tomatoes, veggies. Mostly use it for dinner to cut the French bread. Cuts beautifully, no tearing or ripping of the bread, even fresh loaves of bread. This is the second one to purchase as gift for my mother. Have purchased other Shun knives & am happy with all these knives.Date published: 2013-03-01Rated 4 out of 5 by cookingdo0f from if you are rough on your stuff reconsider... I got this as a gift; it's a gorgeous knife for sophisticated cooking hands; I however, am not sophsticated=) I've had it less than a year and I dented the tips..doh. I learned the hard way that I should use it for things like fruits, veggies (not butternut squash like in the picture, I almost bent it) but it gets skins off pineapples, jicama, kohlrabi, squash well, and big fruits or veggies. Really great for making sandwiches, spreading condiments, and cutting crusts all in one shot (I love the Cutco spatula spreader more for this though). I like that it's also very, very sharp, but for rough/clumsy hands like mine, and novice cooks, reconsider something less dainty.Date published: 2012-12-15Rated 5 out of 5 by faircook from Versatile Knife This is a very versatile knife. Cuts Bread, Tomatos, Veggies and fruit with ease. I use this knife more than any other and at least once a day. This is my second I have purchased. One for our home and one for the RV.Date published: 2012-06-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackkie from Very handy for sandwich making I was given this knife as a gift and I simply love it. It is perfect for sandwich making and loaf slicing. As all good knives, it should be treated with care as the edges are delicate due to their sharpness.Date published: 2012-04-22
Is this similar to the Shun dual density knife?Hi Robin, The ultimate utility knife has more scallops and has a rounded blade shape. The dual density knife is flatter and has more micro serration on its blade tip.Date published: 2020-01-16
