Withdrawn, thanks KKF for taking a look. 👍

Final price drop! $60 shipped CONUS!


Humpday price drop! $70 shipped CONUS!

Recently bought a couple parers, letting this one go because the misono fits my hand better. Just a catch and release - briefly handled, never cut a thing. Paid $89.95 plus tax and shipping ($99.03 total). I'll let it go for $80 now $70 now $60 shipping included CONUS. PP G&S only. I eat the PP fee.

3.5"/90mm blade. Takefu VGMAX core, which is basically VG-10 plus tungsten, and with increases in cobalt and vanadium. Pakkawood D handle.

Shun has its "thing" but the classic parer is actually fairly highly regarded IIRC.











First "I'll take it" either here or in PMs gets it! Thanks KKF.

As much as people say about other aspects of their knives, I must admit they have very comfy handles.
Thanks for weighing in. FWIW, most of the complaints with shun over the years were a function of thinner Japanese knives hitting the mass market, people not knowing how to use them, and chipping the edge with all sorts of walking rock chopping/torquing and cutting stuff that a gyuto shouldn't touch. This is also at least partially responsible for VG-10 taking a hit to its reputation.

Luckily, none of those issues have anything to do with a paring knife. At base, this is a stainless 90mm parer in a really good core steel with a nice pointy tip for detail work, a touch of belly to aid with peeling, and, as you mentioned, a real comfy handle. Fit and finish is also excellent.

Final price drop! $60 shipped CONUS, that's almost 40% off retail when you factor in taxes and shipping. BNIB, never cut a thing.

Knife will remain listed through this weekend. If it doesn't sell at this price by Sunday, I'll gift it to a family member. 🎁

Bummer, wish I saw this sooner.
Wouldn't be interested in a misono swedish parer by any chance? 80mm, razor sharp, great F&F. Used sparingly on one lime and some garlic, so light patina, can remove with flitz. LMK if interested. We've had a humid summer and the swedish carbon steel isn't liking it, would love to rehome somewhere dryer.
