The gentle curve and serrated blade on the Shun Sora Ultimate Utility 6 in. Knife may make it look like a reject from the Island of Misfit Knives, but it will easily find a home when you reach for it every time you need a sharp, multi-purpose blade. The cutting edge offers a low-frequency serration that makes it perfect for slicing delicate thin-skinned fruits and vegetables, yet it can also be used for chopping and slicing. The serrations let you cut the bread, the wide blade spreads the mayo, and then the curved blade slices the crusts off just like Mom used to - without squishing or pulling apart your sandwich. Try it and you'll be surprised at how often you'll find yourself reaching for this multi-function knife. Sora uses Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology to bring together a VG10 san mai cutting edge with a Japanese 420J stainless steel upper. This technology puts high-performance material exactly where it's needed - on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The ergonomic handle is crafted with a traditional Japanese form from durable, high-quality polymers, giving you precise blade control.
About the Shun Sora collection
The Kai Corporation's Shun Sora collection combines the timeless quality of traditional Japanese aesthetics with their patented composite blade technology to offer customers a line of razor-sharp knives at competitive price points. Each blade in the Shun Sora collection has a composite blade of VG10 san mai and a stainless steel upper that are laser-cut and braze-welded together to create the sharpest possible edge. Taking inspiration from classic Japanese sword smiths, the comfortable handle and wavy, hamon blade design echo the form and appearance of a samurai's sword.
