Of course, when the chef's knife isn't in your hand, you'll probably be using a paring knife for all those trimming and peeling tasks.

This attractive set comes in a tasteful box suitable for storage or gift-giving.
While each knife still takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete, the materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX super steel to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formedsimilar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered tsuchime finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag.
The handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty. The paring knife is an indispensible kitchen prep knife. For peeling, trimming, making decorative cuts, or even for chopping small foods like shallots or garlic, the small size of the paring knife gives you complete cutting control.Since every kitchen needs a paring knifeand since youll use it just about every time you cookit makes sense to own a paring knife you can love. May we suggest the Shun Premier Paring Knife? But its real beauty comes from how well it performs.
A thin lightweight blade and a razor-sharp edge make every paring task a breeze. The contour on the bottom of the handle ensures an excellent grip whether held by the handle or in a pinch grip.
This style of knife is often called a tomato or sandwich knife, but its so much more versatile than that description would imply. Of course, it works beautifully on most anything you would put in a sandwichfrom meat to cheese to tomato slices. Whats more, the serrations will handily cut the sandwich in half when its done. But the Premier Serrated Utility offers something others don't. The blade edge is serrated at the front and back, but has a fine edge in the middle.
This means that it's perfect for cutting foods with a tougher or more resilient exterior and a tender interior. For the initial push or pull cut, the serrations glide through the exterior with ease while the fine edge cuts through the softer interior. The combination of serrated and fine edge means you get the perfect slice no matter what you're cutting with no tearing or squashing. Your chefs knife will probably be the most-used knife in your kitchen.
