Shun® Blue Butcher/Utility Knife is part of the Shun Blue line, developed in partnership with award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino. Internationally renowned for his "nose-to-tail" cooking philosophy, Chef Cosentino chose traditional Japanese blade shapes that are essential for preparing the proteins for which he is so well known, as well as a selection of all-purpose tools every kitchen needs. These exciting knives feature a carbon steel cutting core for a razor-sharp edge and quick re-sharpening. For easier care, the "blue" carbon steel core is sandwiched between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel. The beautiful grey PakkaWood® handles are a variation on a traditional Japanese design modified to meet the chef's demands for a secure and comfortable grip. The Shun Blue line makes this selection of classic Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks in the West.
