6" Ultimate Utility Knife - Sora
15cm (6″) Ultimate Utility Knife
AN AMAZINGLY MULTI-FUNCTIONAL 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, then 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.
CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY—NO PUN INTENDED
In Japanese, Sora means “sky.” Sora flies sky-high with Kai’s proprietary Composite Blade technology that brings together a VG10 San Mai cutting edge with a mirror-polished Japanese 420J2 stainless steel upper. This technology puts high performance material exactly where it’s needed, on the edge. The two blade sections are laser cut, then fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Braze welding permanently joins them. The attractive wavy pattern at the joint is based on traditional Japanese sword hamon lines. The blade shapes and handle design are traditional Japanese. The textured TPE polymer handle provides a secure grip and balance; it’s also easy to maintain.
AT THE PEAK OF PERFECTION
In Japan, “shun” (pronounced shoon) is the word used to describe local, seasonal food at the very peak of its flavor and freshness. Shun is a time—the exact moment—when a fruit has reached its perfect ripeness, when a vegetable is at its very best, when meat is at its most flavorful. Home cooks and professional chefs alike celebrate shun in their kitchens, eagerly awaiting each season’s bounty and serving every ingredient in its proper time. Kai named their fine cutlery Shun to honor this tradition of seasonal, mindful eating and as a mark of their dedication to making kitchen cutlery that is always at the peak of its perfection, too.
So now you know; just say, “Shoon” (rhymes with “moon”) for kitchen cutlery that’s designed to help keep your freshest ingredients at their very best.
