Shun Classic Paring Knife (9cm)
Shun kitchen knives are made using state of the art technology and are highly esteemed all over the world – each Shun knife is handcrafted in Japan and requires at least 100 meticulous steps to complete. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to hold. The blade, angled at 16°, is known for extreme sharpness and edge retention. Each knife is clad with 16 layers on either side of a core VG-MAX high carbon stainless steel, while the wood grain pattern on the blade helps reduce friction. The D-shaped PakkaWood handle fits firmly in the hand increasing control and stability. The Shun Classic line also 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.
The Shun Classic Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main function—removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It’s ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.
