Shun Premier Paring Knife, 4-Inch

Handcrafted Japanese paring knife is indispensible for peeling, trimming, chopping, dicing and making decorative cuts in smaller fruits and vegetables. Resembling ancient hand-forged Japanese knives, beautiful Shun Premier knives take at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. Proprietary VG-MAX core blade features 68 outer layers (34 per side) of stainless-steel for superior edge retention. Layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Hand-sharpened 16-degree double-beveled blade is razor-sharp. Hammered tsuchime finish with hollow-ground pattern reduces drag and prevents foods from sticking to the blade. Undulating line near blade's edge resembles the clay-baked, tempered hamon of samurai swords. Rockwell Hardness rating of 61 safeguards a superior sharp edge. Handsome walnut PakkaWood handle is infused with a water-resistant resin for long-lasting durability. Bottom contour of the handle ensures a smooth comfortable, firm grip. Full composite tang construction adds stability. Stainless-steel bolster and embossed end cap for ultimate safety and control. NSF approved*. Hand wash.
