A good utility knife is the third member of your must-have kitchen knife line up. 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 some precision, your utility knife is an excellent choice. Any time a paring knife seems too little and a chef’s knife too much, reach for a utility knife. The Shun Premier Utility Knife offers a razor-sharp 16cm edge that also makes quick work of anything that goes in a sandwich—meats, cheeses, tomato slices, and more. That specialised use is why this style of knife is sometimes called a sandwich knife. You’ll also love the secure grip the ambidextrous Premier contoured handle provides.
All Shun Premier knife purchases come in a beautifully presented gift box.
