The Shun Classic Asian Multi-Prep Knife features a 5-in. blade with a unique triangular shape that is ideal for maneuvering around bones and between joints. Known as a honesuki in Japan, this knife's smaller size provides complete cutting control as you process poultry and other proteins. Its razor-sharp 16° cutting edge makes removing breasts from bone easy and it cuts joint cartilage almost like butter. But that's not all this versatile knife can do. It's perfect for other food prep chores, too, from slicing shallots to trimming vegetables. When you want precision cutting, the Shun Classic Multi-Prep Knife is a perfect choice.
