You'll never run out of uses for the handcrafted Shun Sora 6-inch Utility Knife. We love the versatility of this Sora knife--it's just the right size for slicing tomatoes, meat and cheese for your favorite sandwich, trimming broccoli for a healthy side dish or prepping potatoes for a flavorful mash. Several types of metal come together, thanks to Shun's proprietary Composite Blade technology, to create the optimal cutting tool. The lower portion of the blade on this Shun utility knife has a very hard composite cutting edge surrounded by resilient stainless steel for protection, and it's braze-welded to the top portion, which is made of mirror-polished 420J stainless steel for exceptional durability and rust resistance. You'll find a distinctive wave pattern where the two materials meet that replicates the style found in ancient Japanese swords. This Shun utility knife's double-bevel edge features the characteristic 16-degree blade angles to ensure a razor-sharp blade that can power through tough tasks. The traditionally-shaped heavy-duty polymer handle is textured for a comfortable grip to give you the control you need when slicing, dicing and chopping. Handcrafted in Japan, all Shun knives are protected by a lifetime warranty.

More Sora by Shun


  • This is a great knife and for someone who needs one of this length and weight, I highly recommend it! The blade is quite thin, but unlike a boning knife, not flexible.

    I recommend this product.
