The Shun Narukami Blue #2 Carbon Steel 3.5" Paring Knife is an indispensable kitchen prep knife. For peeling, trimming, making decorative cuts, or even for chopping small foods like shallots or garlic, the small size of the paring knife gives you complete cutting control. The thin lightweight blade and a razor-sharp edge make every paring task a breeze.

For the love of carbon steel, Shun Narukami looks sharp and sharpens easily. Bead-blasted stainless steel cladding helps prevent corrosion on the carbon steel core, hides scratches, and helps with food release. Full-tang construction, and micarta handles, will make Shun Narukami your go-to for many culinary creations. Shun Narukami is a simple carbon steel alloy that provides excellent edge retention and toughness, and can be re-sharpened easily. Yet, like all carbon steels, Shun Narukami requires additional care. Cleaning and drying immediately is key. Over time, the edge will darken, developing a patina which, when formed, will also help protect the edge. Even after hours of food prep, resharpening is a breeze, if it needs it. This is why professional chefs prefer carbon steel. If you love carbon steel, you're going to love Shun Narukami.
