Starting with an exceptionally hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 3.5" Paring Knife is crafted using traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. A highly versatile necessity for any kitchen, this compact knife is the perfect choice for all your peeling, paring, coring, decorating, and trimming, as well as chopping and mincing smaller foods such as garlic. With a short 3.5 blade, this knife provides the exacting precision needed for the most detailed of tasks.
Utilizing the Kasumi method of making blades, the hard core of the blade is supported on each side by 16 layers of Damascus cladding, creating a lovely rippled pattern upon the blade and allowing the blade to more easily glide through foods. The razor-sharp blade delivers sublime performance and exceptional edge retention.
The innovative D-shaped Shun handle fits securely in your palm, crafted using Shun s proprietary resin-treated ebony-black PakkaWood. Sanded and buffed to a glossy finish, the handle offers moisture resistance and durability within its elegant and contemporary appearance.
