Product Description & Reviews
The Shun Hiro SG2 Dual Density Serrated Utility Knife is a great all-purpose knife that will never require sharpening. Also doubles as the ideal knife for tomatoes and other vegetables, designed for power and precision. Every aspect, from the shape of the blade to the way the handle fits snugly into the users hand, has been designed for superlative comfort and control.Blade Length: 7-inchesBlade Type: SerratedBlade Material: Stainless Damascus with SG2 CoreHandle Material: PakkawoodShun Hiro SG2 SeriesCombines striking beauty with peerless performance. In Japanese, the name Hiro is known as "abundant," "generous," and "prosperous." The Hiro cutting core is made of SG2 micro-carbide steel. This ultra-fine-grained steel is incredibly hard and dense, enabling Shun to make thinner blades that can be sharpened to a razor-like 16° cutting angle. At the same time, SG2 offers unmatched edge retention, so it's superb for kitchen use. Due to this combination of performance and durability, SG2 is considered by many to be the world's best blade steel for use in kitchen knives. In 150 handcrafted steps, every curve has been meticulously smoothed and rounded, from spine to heel, while each cutting edge has been precisely sharpened to make every cutting task a pleasure. True to its Eastern heritage, the Shun Hiro's handle follows straight off the blade for a grip Asian-style knife enthusiasts prefer. Made of premium charcoal-colored PakkaWood with deep crimson striations, the handle is also adorned with an inlaid brass-and-steel Samurai family crest mosaic and a mirror-polished nickel silver bolster and end cap. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan.
