Shun’s Premier 6 in. Utility Knife TDM0701 is much more than just a sandwich knife! This knife is used for all the in-between-sized tasks. The blade length on the knife is 6 in. and it’s made of VG-MAX steel. The handle on the knife is contoured walnut-colored Pakkawood and offers a secure grip. Handcrafted in Japan. A good utility knife is the third member of your must-have kitchen knife lineup. In size, it’s between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, making it the perfect size for all those in-between tasks. For trimming green beans, broccoli, and other jobs where you need precision, your utility knife is an excellent choice. Any time a paring knife seems like too little and a chef’s knife too much, reach for a utility knife. The Shun Premier Utility Knife offers a razor-sharp 6-in. edge that also makes quick work of anything that goes in a sandwich—meats, cheeses, tomato slices, and more. That specialized use is why this style of knife is sometimes called a sandwich knife.
