Shun - Shun Classic Perfect 6" Boning Knife - DM0743
Shun classics are the origiginal Shuns, the first Japanese-style knives to be made available to a wider audience in North America. Instead of heavy, ponderous blades, Shun Classic blades are lighter with razor-sharp edges and crafted from advanced steel. Rather than weight, Western handles, Shun Classic offers the graceful control of a traditional Japanese handle.
The Shun Classic Boning/Fillet is adept at these two key kitchen chores: Boning and filleting. For boning, the narrow, sharp, curved blade gets in close to the bone, making it easy to separate meat from bone. It’s perfect for trimming the silver skin from a tenderloin or roast or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces the drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy. When it comes to filleting fish, the blades six-inch length is just right to glide through the body of the fish, quickly removing bones and skin.
