Classic Vegetable Knife
One of three must-have paring knives
The Shun Classic Vegetable Knife is ideal for a wide variety of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. While the size is similar to a paring knife, the blade shape is different. Instead of the paring knife’s curved edge, the Shun Classic Vegetable Knife has a straight 3 ½-in. edge. This straight edge makes it easy to handhold a carrot or zucchini while slicing it into a pot. The flat edge is handy for chopping or mincing smaller herbs and vegetables against a chopping board.
The Shun Classic Vegetable Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
