Shun Classic paring knives are small and precise for delicate peeling and garnishing. These paring knives from Shun are easy to grip thanks to their d-shaped handles. The handles are made from beautiful and strong PakkaWood. Shun's unique bolster, the metal between the blade and the handle, is particularly helpful when you're cutting small foods. You won't need to frequently sharpen the blades on these Shun paring knives because they are made with a hard stainless steel interior layer that keeps an edge for a long time. The outer layers are flexible and make these knives rust resistant and long lasting.
