Shun 8.5cm Paring knife.
A KITCHEN ESSENTIAL
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.
The Shun Classic Paring Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
A Proprietary VG-MAX cutting core—this
high-end stainless steel forms the core
of the entire blade, all the way to the
cutting edge. VG-MAX is extremely hard,
which means Shun Classics can take an
incredible edge and hold it longer.
Stainless Damascus cladding—34 microlayers
of steel each side support the core,
add stain/corrosion resistance, help food
release from blade.
Razor-sharp 16° cutting edge—hand
sharpened to a 16° angle each side for
top performance; blade is doublebevel,
flat ground for easy cutting,
PakkaWood® D-shaped handles—this
traditional Japanese style has a slight
ridge on the right for a comfortable, secure
grip; ebony PakkaWood is beautiful,
durable, and won’t harbor bacteria.
Full composite tang—ensures Classics
are lightweight, yet perfectly balanced.
