The Shun Premier Tim Mälzer Series has been tailored specifically to the needs and requirements of professional chefs. In this premium series, the high-quality material properties of the well-known Shun Classic Series are combined with an entirely novel and commanding overall appearance. The blade is divided into three different textures: The blade's back down to its middle has been hammered to create a surface known as Tsuchime.
This is followed by a fine matt Damascus grain typical for Shun. The blade is finished with a highly-polished precision cutting edge. The meticulously machined blade is paired with a medium brown, grained pakkawood handle. The blade's particularly hard and durable steel core provides incredible sharpness and a long-lasting cutting ability.
Considered to be between a Chef’s knife and a paring knife, the Utility knife or ‘the Petty’ is an all-rounder when it comes to the knives within a kitchen at the Chef’s disposal. A convenient tool that can cater to cutting that the Chef’s knife would be too big for or when handling cutting jobs too large for a paring knife.
Perfect for most type of slicing, dicing and chopping but also capable of handling more heavy-duty roles such as the cutting of thick root vegetables and dense meat. The curved blade enables the rocking of the knife on a cutting board to mince fruit and vegetables quickly.
