Sometimes just the right amount of flex in your blade steel makes
filleting fish easier. The knife conforms to the ribs of the fish,
removing meat from bones quickly and easily. Removing skin from meat is
easier, too. It works well for boning and trimming out poultry and other
meat as well. The whole idea is more food with less waste (and, of
course, you would make stock from the bones and leftovers, too). Shun
Classic's very hard VG10 steel doesn't have that kind of flexibility, so
the Shun Classic 7-in. Flexible Fillet is made of AUS8A, a high-carbon
stainless steel that offers strength, hardness, and wear resistance, as
well as a small amount of flex.
The Shun Classic Flexible Fillet is part of the Shun Classic line of
tasteful and contemporary designs. It shares the same D-shaped PakkaWood
handle as the rest of the beautiful and versatile Shun Classic line.
The Classic line offers you the widest assortment of both traditional
culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find
the right knife for the task.
