This stunningly beautiful line of cutlery features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
A member of the stylish Shun Classic line, this Japanese boning knife comfortably handles fish, poultry, and other meats with equal ease. Featuring a smooth, razor-sharp edge that curves downward from its handle to finish with a piercing tip, this knife measures 6 inches in length.
Leveraging a 90-year history of superior workmanship, Shun knives are precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Using technologically advanced processes, a VG-10 "super steel" core is clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus-look blade. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knifes aesthetic appeal, it also prevents morsels from sticking and avoids crushing or damaging foods. Forming a comfortable D-shaped hold, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin comprise the unique ebony Pakkawood handle. A traditionally offset stainless-steel bolster protects knuckles while a steel end-cap finishes the piece. Although dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. This product includes a lifetime warranty. -- Amy Arnold

Great features of the entire line include these cool "D" shaped handles that fit your hand better. Each knife is made in a right- and left-handed version ([...] for lefties). The steel used for the blades is harder than what you would find in most other knives. The knives are EXTREMELY sharp.
If you're building your set and want to take care of the must-haves first. Move this down on your priority list. Get the chef's, paring and bread knives first. With that said, there is a place for this knife in your kitchen. As with all of my other Shun knives, this one is extremely sharp and it's relatively light.
This is an expensive, but lifetime investment. I encourage you to visit stores and feel the knives in your hand to make sure you are comfortable with them.

This is my first and I'm sure last boning knife. As with all Shun's, it is extremely sharp -- a must for a good boning knife. I was surpised by the knife's weight. Although the blade is flexible, the knife feels heavy for it's size. This gives me (a true novice at deboning and filleting) more confidence.
The famous D-shaped handle makes the knife easier to grip than other boning knives, but it can slip when greasy.
Nevertheless, this Damascus Japanese knife is super sharp.
Being a careful cook, I accidently poked myself with its tip.......my bad.
My point? This knife is so incredibly sharp, be very careful.
I should have known better.
Yes, I don't limit brands. I have a few Henckels, Wusthof, Sabatier, Dexter Asian vegetable slicers. Nothing beats the Shun. My kitchen knife collection consists of maybe 10 different blades.
If I had the money, I'd purchase their Classic 10" Chefs knife #DM0707L, left handed knife for a mere pittance $195 dollars. LOL
I've read the Shun Damascus edge is prone to chipping. IMO, must be ham handed individuals who brutalize what ever style Shun knives. Regarding specific purpose is BONING, period.
However, Shun guarantees their knives for life and will resharpen your, any model (pronounced "shoon"), once a year forever. Just save your receipts to verify.
Yeah, do you see German mfrs offering same?????
I don't think so.
Just my opinion.
I have discovered a small quirk with this knife. As is true with many 6 inch boning knives the weight of the blade is not sufficient to tip the knife blade down when placed on a cutting board or counter top so it stays flat and parallel to the work surface. Since the handle is rounded and very smooth the knife may spin away from position as you lay it down. In other words if you were not paying attention the blade could end up where the handle was and you could cut yourself. This is not really a problem as I just lay it on a kitchen towel if I am going to pick it up and set it down many times. Aside from this little quirk I would highly recommend this knife for a cook that would like to do their own boning.
