The third member of any essential kitchen knife line-up is a utility knife. Between a chef’s knife and a paring knife in size, it is the perfect size for in-between size tasks. It is an excellent choice for trimming green beans, broccoli, and other jobs where you need some precision. The Shun Premier Blonde utility knife features a razor-sharp 6” edge which also makes quick work of anything that goes in a sandwich such as meats, cheeses, tomato slices, etc. That is the reason this style of knife is also called a sandwich knife.
