Shun Classic 3.5" Clip Point Paring Knife, model DM0772; made in Japan.
Shun's Classic line brings performance and elegance to the kitchen that must be experienced to be believed. I've yet to encounter any cutlery that feels so natural, looks so good, or performs so well. This singular paring knife features a clip-point tip and excels at precision paring and utility tasks. Whether to start or supplement a set, this knife is certain to change your culinary experience just as it has for professional chefs worldwide.
Shun crafts their Classic Paring Knife using VG-Max steel which is layered with 16 layers of high-carbon stainless steel on each side of the blade. During the finishing process the layers are exposed while creating a beautiful pattern that not only protects the VG-10 core, it simultaneously creates a blade surface that resists food sticking to it--a real time-saver for kitchen preparation. D-shaped handles are designed after the Japanese tradition and provide a comfortable, controlled grip. Combine all of these features with the sharpest Japanese edge available and you have perfection.
