Description: This exceptional paring knife is the work of Argentinian knifemaker Pablo Untroib. Pablo lives in Buenos Aires. He specializes in knives for professional and amateur cooks as well as making outdoor knives.
The paring knife is the second of the most essential kitchen knives every cook should have on hand. After a chef's knife, you need a paring knife. It's perfect for any paring task, from hulling strawberries to peeling an apple. It also handles jobs such as chopping small foods, like garlic cloves or ginger, against a cutting board. The 4-inch blade is the perfect length for most jobs.
The blade is hand ground VToku2 san mai. A central core of ultra-high performing VToku2 carbon steel is surrounded by layers of softer stainless. This allows the central core to be harder, while being protected by the softer, resilient sides. Because this knife has a carbon steel core, we recommend using camellia oil to help protect the core from oxidation or rust. The blade features a high, flat grind for precise cuts.
The Japanese-inspired handle is dyed and stabilized maple burl with a copper spacer.
The knife is accompanied by a veg tanned leather sheath custom built and tooled by Pancho Elizalde.
This is an exceptionally light, very well balanced paring knife that can be used for hours without fatigue. It is a perfect choice for both home and commercial chefs.
