Description: The 6" blade of the Shun Classic tomato knife has been inverse serrated. This serration, which is perfect for cutting into the slippery skins of tomatoes, does not tear as would a classic serration. This knife is also great for tasks such as slicing mushrooms and other vegetables.
The stunningly beautiful Shun line of kitchen cutlery is forged by Kai in Japan and distributed through Kershaw. The san mai damascus blade reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
A stainless steel VG-10 center core (Jigane) is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side. VG-10 "super steel" is composed of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon and vanadium, resulting in a long-lasting, high-performance edge with easy maintenance. 'D' shape Black Pakawood handles provide beauty and function. The 'D' shape is designed for left handed users and provides maximum comfort and control. Pakawood provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance.
