Shun Sora Ultimate 6" Utility Knife

It doesn't look traditional, but the Shun Sora Ultimate Utility Knife is amazingly versatile. 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 wide blade with its rounded tip also makes it a great knife for spreading mayo on a sandwich, and the serrations work like a bread knife to cut the sandwich in half without tearing. Try it and you'll be surprised at how often you'll find yourself reaching for this multi-function knife.

Nice enough, but unwieldy

from Martinez, GA – Verified Buyer

I'm a huge shun fan and saw this knife at my local William Sonoma. Way fair had it for a better price, and their shipping was super quick. However, even though the knife is very nice, I find myself reaching for my chefs knife or standard utility knife instead, the shape does not lend itself to the type of knife work I normally do. Still, it is a shun.

Something new

from Danville, CA – Verified Buyer

I thought I would try this unique shaped knife based on the narrative description. Although it does perform, it is not the best knife I have in my knife block but does an adequate job.
