Famous for their edge retention and sharpening ease, each Shun Classic knife has an inner core of VG-Max"super-steel" which includes additional carbon and chromium to improve strength, durability, wear, corrosion. Then each blade is clad with 16 layers of stainless Damascus on each side. The resulting pattern is called suminigashi or "ink pattern" after a traditional Japanese paper-decorating technique. While the patterned layers enhance the knife's beautify, they also add durability and stain resistance, and reduce friction when cutting. The handle is made of PakkaWood which is resin-impregnated natural wood.

The 4-in. paring knife is a must have for every kitchen. It's main function is to peel and remove pits, coring, trimming, decorating, and other details.

    • Best parer ever

      The Shun line is nothing short of exemplary. Well-balanced, easy to control, and comfortable to hold. The steel takes an extremely keen edge, and holds it as well as any knife I've used, other than the better ceramic knives. All this in a design that is beautiful to behold. I know this sounds like ad copy, but the knife is really terrific.

      I recommend this product.

    • Shun paring knife

      I have a large Shun chef's knife and use it a lot. It keeps a sharp edge and has a feel of high quality. I had an old generic paring knife I had purchased in Paris 35 years ago, so I was ready for a replacement. The price was right, so I leapt at the chance to get this new paring knife. It has that same quality I liked in the chef's knife, but the blade is too long to do some tasks (removing the core from a tomato or strawberry, for instance). It works very well for mincing shallots or garlic, peeling potatoes, and taking corn off the cob. Overall, I like the knife, but I wish I had paid closer attention to the clearly-stated dimension. Four inches is too long for a paring knife blade.

      I recommend this product.

    • Best knives I've ever owned

      I am one of those people who try everything from Ginsu knives to the pricey chef's store brands and these are the best ones I've ever used. Shun Knives make chopping chores a cinch. Never realized how easy chopping could be till I had these. I have the paring knife, utility knife and 7.5 in. santoku and I can't wait to get a couple more.

      I recommend this product.

    • Shun 4 Inch Pairing Knife

      This is my second Shun knife purchase. They are not only easy to sharpen and keep sharp but are among the easiest knives to handle when cutting. They are well balanced and the "D" shaped handles make for a very comfortable full grip.

      I recommend this product.
