No kitchen is complete without a paring knife and the Shun 4-inch Classic Paring Knife offers beautiful design and quality to make the mundane more extraordinary. The slightly longer blade of the Classic 4-inch Paring Knife affords the same precision and agility of a paring knife with slightly more reach for increased versatility. The cutting core of the blade is made of VG-MAX steel, a proprietary formula that’s an upgraded version of the successful VG10 formula. Focused on innovation and technology, Shun produces kitchen knives of sleek design and exceptional quality. The Classic 4-inch Paring Knife is created from a fusion of cutting-edge technology and ancient blade-making traditions. There is no compromise when it comes to quality and Shun knives are beautiful and long-lasting. Derived from the Japanese word indicating a food’s peak ripeness, Shun produces knives of peak performance.
A member of the stylish Shun Classic line, this durable paring knife deftly handles intricate dicing and trimming tasks alongside its requisite peeling and skin-removal role. The paring knifes compact size makes it easy to handle and thus a favorite when control and precision are a priority. The tool features a narrow sloping blade measuring 4 inches in length with a piercing tip.
Leveraging a 90-year history of superior workmanship, Shun knives are precision-forged in Japan by renowned blade manufacturer KAI. Using technologically advanced processes, a VG-10 “super steel” core is clad with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel to produce a rust-free Damascus-look blade. The Damascus detailing not only enhances the knifes aesthetic appeal, it also prevents morsels from sticking and avoids crushing or damaging foods. Forming a comfortable D-shaped hold, a fused blend of hardwood veneers and resin comprise the unique ebony Pakkawood handle. A traditionally offset stainless-steel bolster protects knuckles while a steel end-cap finishes the piece. Although dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. This product includes a lifetime warranty. — Amy Arnold
