Shun Classic knives combine traditional Japanese style with the superb performance of Damascus steel and the elegance of ebony PakkaWood handles. Damascus steel blades are known for being tough and resistant to shattering, as well as their capability of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge. Pakkawood is constructed of carefully selected foreign and domestic hardwood veneers which undergo a process that creates multiple fused layers of treated hardwoods, making a weather, bacteria and moisture resistant handle that is dimensionally stable. This knife features full-tang construction for added strength and balance. The 4-inch blade of this paring knife reduces blade-to-food sticking, making prep time quicker, and the balance point between the handle and blade enhances precision. The unique combination of a VG-10 stainless steel cutting core and 32 layers of Damascus steel creates an incredibly sharp, strong blade with unmatched edge retention. The D-shaped handle is designed to fit perfectly into the curve of your grip for a comfortable hold, and the stainless steel accents add a unique finishing touch. Each Shun Classic blade features the Shun logo emblazoned onto the side, and should be hand washed to preserve the quality. This Shun Classic paring knife is ideal for mincing onions and herbs, as well as peeling, coring and cutting fruits and vegetables.
