KSDMS232: Classic 2 Piece Set
Shun Cutlery
 
A beautiful Shun Classic 2 piece set for yourself or as a gift. Set includes a 3-1/2" Classic Paring knife and a 5-1/2" Classic Santoku knife.

Paring Knife
The Shun Classic Paring knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the Chef's knife because, like the Chef's knife, the Paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main function—removing or "paring" away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It's ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.

The Shun Classic Paring 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.

Santoku Knife
Stocking your kitchen is all about getting the tools that work best for you. May we suggest you try the Shun Classic 5-1/2-inch Santoku? In size, it's between our small and full-sized santoku. This in-between weight and size make it perfect for medium-sized kitchen tasks, from slicing carrots and shallots to chopping herbs to cutting chocolate or butter. Cooks with smaller hands or those who simply prefer a smaller, lighter knife may find that this smaller santoku becomes a top go-to knife. Some cooks have told us they use it in place of a paring knife for some tasks or love it for cutting up fruit for breakfast.
