KAI SHUN Paring Knife 9cm
Kai Shun have cult status the world over for the quality, performance, craftsmanship and the sheer beauty of their knives.
Paring knives come in a variety of lengths. This one is our 9cm Paring Knife and it's perfect for any paring task as well as chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger, against a cutting board. The extra length of this knife makes it easy to peel and trim even larger fruits and vegetables, such as extra-large potatoes or apples. The Paring Knife is quite simply a kitchen essential.
The 34 layers of folded Damascus Steel on each side (68 in total) sit on a core layer of VG Max Steel which is one of the toughest and resistant steels available. The tang of the knife extends all the way down through the pakkawood handle giving it extra balance and strength. A great little knife!
Cleaning and Care Tips:
Do not put your knife in the dishwasher.
Store either in a knife block, in a drawer or ideally on a magnetic knife rack.
Wash your blade with hot water before first use and dry thoroughly.
After each use, it is good practice to wash your blade under hot water, to dry with a dishcloth immediately and then to store it away.
Use a wooden or synthetic board for chopping. Stone or glass will dull your blade.
After slicing through acidic foodstuffs such as lemons, limes or tomatoes, wash and dry your knife straight away, because if left, the acids will begin to damage the steel, leaving spots.
