Shun Fuji Paring Knife

Designed for spectacular sharpness and ultimate control, this knife delivers the precision required for speedy paring, peeling and other detailed cutting tasks. Inspired by the high-performance knives used by Japanese chefs, our exclusive Shun Fuji collection represents the very best in cutlery craftsmanship and technology. Developed for the experienced cook who prefers the lightness and razor sharpness of Eastern-style blades. The blade's core of SG2 steel is clad on each side with Damascus steel composed of 80 alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel. Resulting 161-layer blade is thin and light yet strong and hard, with a supersharp cutting edge. Handle is dark tagayasan wood, or "iron sword wood," an extremely dense wood traditionally used in Japan to make samurai sword handles. The double-D handle shape has finger ridges on both sides for a comfortable, ambidextrous grip. End cap made of polished Damascus steel. Shun Fuji collection won the "Kitchen Knife of the Year Award" at the U.S. 2011 Blade Show for the best in new product quality and design. Handcrafted in Japan. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

New Favorite Go To Knife
July 23, 2013
Razor sharp, easy to hone, holds edge and cutting is effortless. The ripples in the sides breaks the natural vacuum from cutting and food does not stick. Can easily slice a tomato 1/32” thick. Not a useful thickness but it was fun doing that.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Shape

Not worth it for the price
January 24, 2012
After a closer review of the knife, the knife does not deserve a $250 price tag let alone $200 sale price.
Dislikes:
• Knife butt embossing impression is cheap and shallow which makes it look cheap
• The transition from the bolster and the handle has an uneven transition
• Overall, the overall finish knife does not reach out to the buyer as a must buy for this price
Like:
• Great knife design - knife design is very nice.
Pros: Size, Shape, Design
Cons: Quality, poor craftmanship
