Description

The Shun Kanso Paring Knife is ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.<br /><br />Shun Kanso is a design principle based on Zen philosophy meaning "simplicity," but simplicity that is achieved by eliminating the non-essential. Features high-performance steel, razor-sharp edge, perfect balance, and precision cutting control. The blade is constructed of Japanese AUS10A highly refined high-carbon vanadium stainless steel sharpened to a 16&deg; cutting angle each side to cut cleanly and help preserve food's freshness and best taste, providing a razor-sharp edge that holds longer. The Heritage finish blade hides scratches and gives a rustic look that just improves with age. The handle is made of tagayasan wood, sometimes known as "iron sword wood." The full tang construction provides strength, balance, and easy cutting control. Handcrafted in Seki, Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.

    A fine knife in the Shun tradition

    We use these as steak knives for which they are superb. I only own one Henkel knife, a slicer, all the rest are Shun or other Japanese knives. I have used the same Shun 3.5 inch paring knife for 17 years and only sharpened it once.
