We literally designed this knife for the in-between jobs. It works great for both on- or off-the-board work. Something about the size, weight, and balance of our utility knife makes it our favorite knife to hold. It’s just…just right. Just treat it like a mini chef knife.
Anything smaller than a steak and anything larger than a grape is going to be a perfect job for our utility knife. Featuring VG-10 at the core, the KAN Core utility knife shows off 66 layers of damascus stainless steel cladding, and you can choose either our beautiful dark ebony wood handle or a composite resin G10 handle. You’re going to love this knife.
Uses: slicing/coring fruits and vegetables, trimming fat, on or off-the-board work
- 5-inch blade
- 67-layers Damascus
- Japanese VG-10 Core
- 15° double-sided bevel edge

I purchased this thru one of the knife bundles available (this knife, the 6″ and the bread knife). I’ve wanted to have a nice small knife for small jobs when slicing fruit and veggies that don’t require pulling out a large knife. This definitely fit the bill. It is weighted perfectly, has a sharp edge and looks beautiful. I love using it and quickly washing it off, towel drying and covering it back up to place in its drawer. It brings me joy every time. Love it!

I just received my third order of KAN knives and I purchased two more of the utility knives to give as gifts. All of the knives are beautiful, are a pleasure to hold and use, and they retain their edges amazingly. The utility knife is far and away the knife I reach for most often.
I bought this knife for my 9 year old daughters birthday. My hope is I can teach her great knife skills and she’ll have this knife forever and will remember all the years we spent cooking together. Right when I gave her the knife and I was teaching her how to hold the knife I messed up and cut myself. Totally my fault, but I will say this knife is sharp as S*&T!!!! We love the knife and decided to take a bit safer approach for the time being to get my daughter used to using a knife. Long winded way of saying – this is an excellent product, excellent price, and I look forward to buying more KAN knives!

I honestly wasn’t sure if I needed a knife in this size. I typically do all of my work with either a paring knife, or a chef’s knife. But now that I have this I’ve found myself reaching for it constantly. And much more often than my paring knife. Something about this size knife just fits so many scenarios in my kitchen.

After being blown away by how great this knife feels to use I decided to buy one for my dad since he has a tremor and isn’t super confident with larger knives. He loves it! (Actually both my parents do, so now I might have to get them the rest of the set as well)
