Paring knives come in a variety of lengths. This one is our 4-in. Shun Classic Limited Edition Paring Knife and it's perfect for any paring task—as well as cutting small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger, against a cutting board. This size makes it exceptionally easy to handle, too. This Limited Edition version is even lighter and easier to handle with no endcap. The Shun Classic Limited Edition Paring Knife is quite simply a kitchen essential.
