This-Is-One-of-the-Best-Kitchen-Knives-You-Can-Buy-for-Less-Than-a-Hundred-Bucks

If you Google, “Do I need a utility knife?” you’ll find a bunch of articles about how the kitchen utility knife is essentially the red-headed stepchild of your knife block, and you should probably just throw it out. [To be clear, we’re talking about the oddly sized kitchen knife that slots into the rotation between the paring knife and the chef’s knife, not the classic utility blades you use for packages and projects.] This is going to be a controversial opinion, but we actually like a quality utility knife like this 6-inch option from renowned Japanese maker Shun. The fact that it’s almost half off on Amazon right now is certainly a huge factor in our decision to pick one up, but there are more than enough reasons this $70 knife deserves a spot in your kitchen. Precision-forged, high-carbon, 16 layer stainless blade with a Damascus look for functionality and durability. D-shaped Pakkawood handle with offset bolster for comfort and convenience. Lifetime warranty because shit happens. More than all of that, the utility knife itself serves as the perfect tool for times when the paring knife is too small and the chef’s knife is too big—like cutting limes for beers, slicing potatoes, cutting fruit and even filleting a prime piece of fish.
