cutlery-corner128

After the catch of the day or a simple trip to the market, properly preparing fish requires the right cutting tool. This Japanese Gokujo knife by Shun features a 6-inch blade designed specifically for the task of boning and filleting fish. The knife’s strong blade provides an elegantly contoured shape that makes it easy to safely and efficiently cut meat away from joints, bones, and tendons, all while maintaining the integrity of the meat. Overall, the knife measures approximately 11 by 8/9 by 1-4/5 inches.

Like other knives in Shun’s Classic collection, the knife comes precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Its eye-catching beauty starts with a VG-10 stainless-steel blade, which features 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a 33 layered Damascus look, but without the rusting problems associated with Damascus. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knife’s aesthetic appeal, but it also prevents morsels from sticking and reduces drag when slicing. The knife’s sleek good looks continue on into its handle. Offering a D-shaped design for a comfortable grip, the unique ebony Pakkawood handle consists of a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin to exceptionally noteworthy results. Its steel end-cap offers an attractive finishing touch, and the knife carries a limited lifetime warranty. Though dishwasher-safe, Shun recommends washing the knife by hand for best results.
