Starting as an impressively hard core of VG10 steel, the Shun Classic 3.5� Paring Knife with Reverse Grip is crafted using traditional Japanese knife-making techniques. The perfect choice for all your peeling, paring, coring, decorating, and trimming, this compact knife is highly versatile and a necessity for any kitchen. With a short 3.5� blade, this knife provides the exacting precision needed for the most detailed of tasks, including chopping and mincing smaller foods such as garlic.
Employing the Kasumi method of making blades, the hard core of the blade is supported with 16 layers of Damascus cladding on each side, creating a lovely ink-like pattern upon the blade and allowing the blade to more easily glide through foods. The razor-sharp blade delivers exceptional performance and sublime edge retention.
Reversed for a more natural grip for left-handers the innovative D-shaped Shun handle feels natural and secure as it fits in your palm. Crafted using Shun�s proprietary resin-treated ebony-black PakkaWood and then sanded and buffed to a hard, shiny finish, the handle offers moisture resistance and durability alongside its elegant and contemporary appearance. Hand wash the Shun Classic 3.5� Paring Knife with Reverse Grip for best edge retention.
