Shun Kanso Paring
Kai Shun Kanso 9cm Paring knife, great for peeling, trimming, coring and more.
The Shun Kanso 9cm Paring Knife is a must-have for every kitchen. In a way, you can think of it as the mini version of the chefs knife because, like the chefs 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.
All Shun Kanso knives are presented in an attractive gift box.
