Shun Sora Paring Knife 9cm
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.
You can think of a paring knife as a smaller version of a chefs knife because, like the Sora Chefs Knife, the Sora Paring Knife is quite versatile. 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 Sora knives are presented in an attractive gift box.
