The Shun Nagare Utility Knife is a beautiful, multi-purpose kitchen knife. Between a chef's knife and a paring knife in size, it is extremely useful for a wide range of tasks, from slicing tomatoes to trimming vegetables. The Nagare Utility Knife's spectacular blade is made of our Dual Core stainless steel. Once you see the blade's beautiful flowing lines, you will understand why we named this series "Nagare," which means "flow" or "a current" in Japanese. The Nagare Utility Knife's Dual Core Damascus blade is made from 71 alternating micro layers of high carbon, high chromium VG10 and VG2 stainless steels, roll-forged to produce a finer grain in the steel and to give it both strength and beauty. The laminated steel is then hot forged to create the flowing pattern that allows the layers to alternate along the cutting edge and prolong cutting performance. The premium blade is combined with full-tang construction and a comfortable, contoured handle for a kitchen tool that is simply beyond compare. Polished rivets and a tapered endcap add to the sophisticated, luxurious look of this high-performance cutlery.
