Description: Handmade by Jim Arbuckle, this paring knife is an excellent choice for the chef that wants a knife that is as attractive as it is useful. This piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind - there's not another one like it in the world!
This paring knife is a perfect choice for detail tasks - from taking the eyes out of potatoes to removing the heads from tomatoes. The short, thin blade combines control and precision.
The blade is made from high performing, low care 154CM stainless steel and has an heirloom quality hand-rubbed satin finish. It was hardened and triple tempered to Rc 59-60 for excellent edge retention. The blade is distal tapered to lighten it and create a perfect balance. The blade is convex ground and provides a durable chip-resistant edge.
The spine moves into a fileworked tang. Modified bamboo filework between the scales has been filled with black epoxy and polished. This gives the beauty of filework without the hassle of cleaning food particles out of it. Stabilized presentation grade buckeye burl (Aesculus spp.) scales are set on the full tang and will hold up well to the high demands of either a commercial or home kitchen. The handle is contoured with a deep choil - this semi-circular cut-out allows the forefinger to rest comfortably and makes the knife easy to hold in several different grip options.
Excellent work throughout!
