The Shun Classic Series unites centuries-old Japanese Samurai black-smithing with today's modern and technically-sophisticated manufacturing processes. The result is an exceedingly high-quality range of Damascus knives, engineered with attention to the most minute details and designed to always retain its sharpness. The knives are therefore ideally suited for professional use. The Shun Classic blades are gorgeous to look at due to the distinctive semigloss pattern exhibited by the Damascus steel composite comprising 32 layers.
The small all-purpose knife that is known as the paring knife gets its name from its function. Pairing is defined as cutting away the outer surface and to removing the ends from either fruit or vegetables. Used for the preparation of fruit or vegetables in meals, other functions include the removal of cores, precision peeling, removing seeds to trimming meats.
