Paring knives come in a variety of lengths. This one is our 4-in. Shun Classic Paring Knife and it’s perfect for any paring task—as well as chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger, against a cutting board. The extra length of this knife makes it easy to peel and trim even larger fruits and vegetables, such as extra-large potatoes or apples. The Shun Classic Paring Knife is quite simply a kitchen essential.
The Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance.

The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful.
