Crafted using the Japanese Kasumi tradition of knife-making, the Shun Reserve 3.5" Paring Knife sports an impressively hard micro-carbide steel core. This compact knife is a must-have essential for any kitchen, and the perfect choice for all your coring, peeling, paring, decorating, and trimming chores. While often used in-hand for peeling and paring, this blade also excels on a cutting board for detailed chopping and mincing tasks with smaller foods such as shallots, garlic or ginger. With its petite 3.5” blade, this knife enables exacting precision necessary for the most intricate work.
Supported by sixteen shiny layers of nickel silver stainless steel on each side, the strong core of the Shun Reserve 3.5" Paring Knife is constructed using the very fine-grained SG2 steel. The resulting blade can take a very fine edge and offers unparalleled edge retention, sharpened to a 16˚ flat ground cutting angle each side. The Shun Reserve 3.5" Paring Knife offers a Western-style full-tang construction and a heftier blade that provides perfect balance, precision and power within a gracefully beautiful visage.
The handles of Shun Reserve knives are crafted using a crimson-and-charcoal version of Shun’s PakkaWood, a resin-treated hardwood that merges wood’s inherent beauty with plastic’s durability for superb moisture resistance and long-lasting strength. The contoured handle offers an ambidextrous grip that nestles comfortably within your hand. For longer edge retention, hand-wash the Shun Reserve 3.5" Paring Knife.
For three generations, the prestigious KAI corporation has crafted superior cutlery in Seki City, Japan. The Shun Reserve 3.5" Paring Knife carries a limited lifetime warranty along with complimentary lifetime sharpening service provided by Shun.
