Product Description

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.

From the Manufacturer

Shun Classic Cutlery

Why Buy Shun Classic:

Born of the ancient samurai-sword-making tradition and hand-finished for precision and beauty, Shun Classic is an ideal choice for anyone buying their first Japanese knife or 50th. The high-quality line of cutlery makes a worthwhile addition to any chef's arsenal of tools--it's used by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Produced in the widest variety of specialized styles, the Classic line features both traditional European blade shapes and innovative cutting-edge designs.

Shun Classic's amazingly sharp blade is famous for both edge retention and ease of sharpening. Each blade has a core of VG-10 "Super Steel" with a Pattern Damascus cladding of 32 layers of high-carbon stainless steel--16 layers on either side. While the wood grain pattern enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.

NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.

Detailed Features

  • Blade core consists of high-carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years.
  • Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box. This is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20-22 degrees.
  • Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain.
  • Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing.
  • D-shaped handle fits in the palm and provides comfort and control, keeping the knife's handle secure in the hand during use.
  • Available standard in D-shaped handle styles or by special order in reverse D-shaped handle styles.
  • Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF Certified for use in commercial kitchens.
  • Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing.
  • Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer.
  • Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty.

This knife is very sharp and holds it's edge really well.
Ken Baroni
This knife is fantastic; it certainly can be used for more than just boning and filleting, although it does those jobs extremely well.
Amazon Customer
It is as described and cuts through meats like hot butter.

I became a big fan of the asian knives, and have been slowly replacing my german knives with the Shun Classic line. This knife is a bit non-traditional when compared to your typical boning knives, but it's worked very well for me, both for actual bone removal and for trimming fat and silver skin from tenderloins, lamb racks and other choice cuts.

This thing is great for trimming meat. The curve in the blade helps each slice glide through the meat. I have trimmed and broken down several whole chickens with this and had no problem. Do not whack at bones with this like it was a cleaver, but the blade will not fall apart if it makes contact either, just be careful.

Don't let them calling this a boning knife throw you off! It's one of the best, most versatile, go-to knives I have. Not only can you bone the most delicate of fish with ease but it's equally a joy for chopping onions, slicing tomato's paper thin and so on. I know, I know, it's not supposed to be used like that but once it's in your hand, you just find more and more uses for it outside its stated boning use. LOVE this knife and would never be without it. One thing to note, it's RAZOR sharp right out of the box...watch your fingers or learn to use a knife correctly! :)

I received this knife as a wedding gift. I have several other Shun knives, and this one certainly lives up to all of my expectations. The build quality of the knife is excellent, and it looks great. All of my Shuns are very sharp, but this one feels sharper than the rest ever did. The blade glides through meat with little effort. While it may not be as versatile as a paring or chef's knife, for cutting meats (on or off the bone), it really shines.

Very sharp, I use it exclusively for trimming fat off of the many types of meat I use in preparation for the smoker.

I bought this as a gift but I took a peek at it before wrapping it up and man, it's hella sleek and sharp as they say in the reviews. Excellent kitchen tool.

I bought this for my husband and he loves it which makes me happy because now I don't have to do any fish preparation before he BBQ's. He says it makes preparation much easier, so I guess that is a good recommendation for anyone who cooks fish.

This knife is excellent for filleting fish!
It has the sharpest edge that cuts through the fish bones like nothing.
