The Shun Classic Straight Paring Knife is ideal for a wide variety of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed. Perfect for trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. While the size is similar to a paring knife, the blade shape is different. Instead of the paring knife's curved edge, the Shun Classic Vegetable Knife has a straight edge. This straight edge makes it easy to hand-hold a carrot or zucchini while slicing it into a pot. The flat edge is handy for chopping or mincing smaller herbs and vegetables against a chopping board.
The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades with D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. The razor-sharp blades offer top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel provides incredible edge retention. Blades are handcrafted of durable clad with Damascus stainless steel, ground and bead-blasted creating a 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 hold. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.
