Premier // Paring 4” Knife
The Premier Paring Knife is an indispensable 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. Thin and lightweight, the contour on the bottom of the handle ensures an excellent grip whether held by the handle or in a pinch grip.
The Shun Premier line calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. 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, while 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 formed—similar to the one 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, and the handles nestle comfortably in the hand, while the embossed end cap adds balance and beauty.
