Even with all this, you'll have room for an additional Shun knife and a pair of Kitchen or Herb Shears in your Shun Bamboo Block. The Shun Classic Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile.
The paring knife gets its name from its main functionremoving or paring away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. Its 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. In size, the Shun Classic 6-in. Utility Knife is between a chefs knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter. It's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, tooalmost like a large paring knife.Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chefs knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. Its nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwichfrom thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses. If there is one knife that you simply cant be without, its this one. Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for preparing fruits, vegetables, proteins, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan.
With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives. With each use of your knife, the razor-sharp edge naturally bends over just a tiny bit. The edge is still sharp, but the sharpest part isnt making contact with the food. The answer is honing with the Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel.It gently realigns the edge of the blade, prolonging the knife's sharpness. The Shun Classic Combination Honing Steel has two surfaces: a smooth one for day-to-day honing, and a micro-ribbed one for weekly honing.

There are slots for two larger knives and two for medium or small knives.
