The Shun Classic Paring knife is a kitchen essential. 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. Its compact size makes it ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detailed work. This slightly larger version lets you take on larger foods quickly and easily. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can be used successfully for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves.
Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary designs feature beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Behind the knives’ beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering the most extreme performance possible. Shun’s VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, creating a woodgrain pattern that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion-resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. Shun Classic also offers the widest assortment of both traditional blade shapes and cutting edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
