Product Description

The Shun Reserve 3.5 inch paring knife is the perfect knife for paring, coring or creating the fine detail work of garnishing on radishes or other foods. Shun Reserve perfectly marries the desire for the ultra-sharp Japanese blade with the weightier feel that Western-style knife lovers prefer. Nothing has been overlooked in the creation of this extraordinary line of kitchen knives-from the weightier blade that provides powerful, precision cutting-to the contoured handles that fit the hand like a glove to provide cutting control; Each knife is a work of art. The blades boasts an incredible ladder Patterned Damascas that is stunning visually, while the dark charcoal PakkaWood handles with red striations dazzle in or out of the knife block. Each feature is chosen for its beauty, as well as its benefit. Shun Reserve knives feature ultra-premium SG2 micro carbide steel cutting core, offering the highest level of performance. SG2 steel has an extremely dense grain structure and purity enabling it to take and hold an exquisitely fine edge with unparalleled durability. Each knife has 32 layers of nickel/stainless Pattern Damascus surrounding the SG2 cutting core for weight, strength and durability. Reserve knives feature full tang, resin-impregnated, riveted PakkaWood handles that offer increased strength. The charcoal PakkaWood handles are unmatched in beauty with the crimson striations and inlaid mosaic Samurai family crest. There is a knife for every job around the kitchen. You’ll appreciate the Reserve’s ultra-sharp cutting edge that you’ve come to expect from Shun knives, while falling in love with the weight and feel that lends itself to traditional Western-style knives. Beauty and innovation-expect nothing less from Shun.

I struggled between three and four stars on this knife. When I first bought it, it was easily the best knife that I have ever owned. Ever. I have other Shun knives, but this one was exceptional.

The blade is beautiful and very sharp - sharper than any of the other Shun knives that I have. The weight and feel is outstanding. I always cut my apples with paring knives, and this one did better and felt better than my Shun Premier paring knife - which was the best knife that I had used prior to this.

I was totally excited to give this five stars...until last night. What's not shown in the product picture is that there is a red layer of some material between the PakkaWood handles on each side and the metal tang. When mine arrived, the red material in one small section was splintered, but no big deal. What I noticed last night, though, was that the metal tang was exposed over most of the length of the handle on one side because the red material had apparently eroded due to washing - and the tang was sharp enough to shallowly slice the skin on my hand. This is the only knife that I've ever owned in which the tang has become exposed - ever - and after only about ten uses. That's seriously disappointing, given how excellent the knife is in general.

So, while the individual pieces of the knife are by far the best that I've ever owned, the fact that the design allows the sharp tang to become exposed is a big detractor. I'm not the first reviewer to note this, so I know it's not limited to the one that I bought. I give this a reserved recommendation, but with the caveat that you return or exchange yours if the red layer isn't perfect when you receive it. I thought something was off when I opened mine, but I didn't act on it - and now I wish that I would have.

We purchased the Shun Reserve Paring Knife as a Christmas treat for ourselves. As a man I really liked the beefy handle and the western-style grip. My wife loved the sharpness of the blade. She said she could lay the knife on veggies and let gravity cut them. The length of the knife is 7 13/16 inches. The grip from the bolster to the end of the handle measures 4 inches. The laser etching on the blade gives it a cool look and the nickel/stainless steel makes for easy care.

Now to my concerns. After only 3 weeks of use, the wood inlays which sandwich the tang began to splinter and separate from the knife. Leaving valleys between the tang and prominent charcoal wood pieces of the handle. This exposes the edge of the tang and makes for an annoying little skin gripper when using the knife. My recommendation would be to lose the red inlays and make the handle out of two solid pieces on each side of the tang.

I would like to conclude by saying we have other Shun knives that have served us very well for many years and this is the only time we have ever returned one of their products.

I bought this paring knife for my wife and the first time she used it, the tip broke off. The seller said this was not a common problem and promptly shipped a replacement. Within a week, the tip on the second knife was gone. I suppose this could be due to improper usage, although this has not happened with any other knife (including paring knives) my wife has owned over the last 23 years. I'm guessing it might be fine for a properly trained chef who never makes a mistake, but it is much too delicate for a normal cook. Another observation I have about Shun knives in general (my wife has a Shun chef's knife also) is that the edges are much more subject to damage than, say, a Wusthof or Henckels. Shuns also seem to need more frequent sharpening. Yes, I am aware chefs sharpen their knives frequently, but there's that problem of what professionals do. Although my wife loves these knives overall, they just don't seem suited to regular folks who have not been trained in proper usage and maybe get their knives sharpened every ten years. I give them four stars because in the right hands and with extra special care they are superior knives.

I have been collecting kitchen knives for 30+ years but have only a few that I use regularly. I care for and sharpen my knives at home with a waterstone and have become extremely picky when it comes to new knives.
This knife makes it into this exclusive club without any hesitation. An extremely well balanced and extraordinarily beautiful knife, it was razor sharp right out of the box. It has become my go-to knife for small jobs.
I cannot say how easy it is to maintain it's edge yet, but don't think it will be much of an issue. The current $120 price for this knife is a steal.

I have a large number of Kitchen Knives, including those by Wusthof and Henckels. This is by far the sharpest and most pleasing to use.

...that happens to cut like a razor. Unbelievable knife.

I bought a Tojiro set for my brother and his new wife as a wedding present last summer and they had two empty slots in the knife block. I bought the Shun Reserve as a Christmas gift to be a "show" knife but it instantly became her favorite. Photos/videos can't do this knife justice. Spectacular.

If you want to blow away a friend or relative who loves to cook, this is a gift they will never forget.
