The nimbleness of a utility knife and the top performance of carbon steel come together in the Shun Narukami 6-in. Utility Knife. Its narrower, straighter blade is perfect for smaller tasks where precision is required, from trimming vegetables to slicing sausages. Narukami, which means “thunderbolt” in Japanese, is designed for professionals and for those who appreciate the unique qualities of fine carbon steel cutlery. Like all carbon steels, Blue II requires additional care. Cleaning and drying immediately is key. Over time, the edge will darken, developing a patina which, when formed, will also help protect the edge. This striking kitchen knife is one of the must-have blades for your kitchen collection.
