This style of knife is often called a tomato or sandwich knife, but it is so much more versatile than that description would imply. Of course, it works beautifully on almost anything you would put in a sandwich - from meat to cheese to tomato slices. What's more, the serrations will handily cut the sandwich in half when done. The Premier Serrated Utility Knife offers something else too - the blade edge is serrated at the front and back, but also has a fine edge in the middle. That makes it perfect for cutting foods with a tougher or more resilient exterior and a tender interior. For the initial push or pull cut, the serrations glide through the exterior with ease while the fine edge cuts through the softer interior. The combination of serrated and fine edge means you get the perfect slice with no tearing or squashing.
The Shun Premier Serrated Utility Knife is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX steel to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed - similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag. The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
