Reserve Paring Knife
Paring is quick, easy, and more beautiful with Shun Reserve
The Reserve Paring Knife’s charcoal-and-crimson PakkaWood handle nestles into your hand to make paring tasks quick and comfortable. The stunningly beautiful ladder Damascus blade is razor sharp and easily handles any job you ask of it. This essential kitchen knife not only offers unmatched beauty, but it’s also extremely versatile. Its compact size makes it ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. While you will generally use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting surface, it also works extremely well for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger, on a cutting board.
The Shun Reserve Paring Knife is part of the Shun Reserve line, a masterful blend of graceful beauty and impeccable performance. Shun Reserve knives are full-tang Western-style kitchen tools clad with 32 layers of flowing “ladder” Damascus on each side of the blade—for a total of 64 layers of cladding. Yet as beautiful as this elegant Damascus is, it is Reserve’s SG2 steel cutting core that makes it truly remarkable. This ultra-fine-grained steel is incredibly hard and dense—enabling Shun to make thinner blades that can be sharpened to a razor-like 16° angle. At the same time, SG2 offers unmatched edge retention. Shun Reserve offers the strength and perfectly balanced weight that Western-style knife lovers prefer. Full-tang, riveted construction provides a heftier blade that delivers both power and precision. Exceptionally beautiful, Shun Reserve knives offer supreme performance and are a pleasure to use.
