Shun Hiro Serrated Utility Knife
- Special Offer
Our exclusive Shun Hiro collection features high-performance Eastern-style knives designed for speed, agility and balance as well as striking beauty. A cutting core of ultra premium SG-2 steel gives them a super sharp, lasting edge, and hammered blades help keep foods from sticking for fast, efficient use. Handcrafted in Japan, this versatile knife has a 6"-long serrated edge that slices cleanly through tomatoes and other delicate produce. It’s useful for slicing sandwiches and bagels, too.
- Eastern-inspired design with extremely thin, lightweight blade for fast and agile performance.
- The blade's core of SG-2 powdered steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 32 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel, for a total of 65 layers.
- SG-2 is an extremely fine-grained, dense and hard steel, which enables it to take and hold an exquisitely fine edge with long-lasting sharpness.
- The hammered pattern (tsuchime in Japanese) helps the blade pass easily through food without sticking.
- Contoured, ambidextrous handle is designed for ultimate comfort and control.
- Handle is dark charcoal-colored PakkaWood with crimson striations and an inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest.
- Mirror-polished nickel silver bolster and end cap.

Shun Hiro Chef's Knife with Stand
Rated 4 out of 5 by GNWtransplant from Love it, but it does have a small flaw I purchased this knife approximately 6 months ago and use it regularly. It slices paper thin through tomatoes and citrus fruits with ease. My only disappointment with this knife is that the tip of it is SO thin that it bends easily. It wasn't enough to make me return the knife, however; considering the cost of this knife I feel this shouldn't be an issue. That said, I will continue to add to my Shun Hiro collection.Date published: 2012-10-20
