When precision work is required, a paring knife should be your first choice. Paring knives are great tools because they have short blades - 3.5’’ in this case - making for quick and tidy work in a variety of applications. The Shun 3.5’’ Classic Paring Knife has a high-carbon stainless steel blade which will keep its edge nicely, and it features the pakkawood handle that is found throughout Shun’s product line. Big knives tend to get most of the shopping attention from buyers, but a small paring knife such as this is an essential piece of kitchen gear.
There is a Damascus look to this knife thanks to the 16 layers of stainless steel that have been used, and the blade will be rust free for years as a result. A lifetime warranty stands behind this quality Shun product, which should be kept out of the dishwasher whenever possible for the good of the blade. Place your order today!

Razor-sharp hand sharpened 16° angle cutting edge on each side for top performance; blade is double-bevel, flat ground for easy cutting and food release.
PakkaWood - Premium, resin-impregnated hardwood resists moisture and is strong and durable.
