Description: Sam Reed is a craftsman and metalworker living just outside Seattle, WA. He's happiest when he's making beautiful and functional things. Everything he designs and makes is meant to be used.
Paring knives are a must-have for every kitchen. You can think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main function—removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It’s ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.
The blade is flat ground, distal tapered AEB-L stainless steel. AEB-L is ultra high performance -- combining the convenience of stainless steel with the ability to take an acute edge and hold it (a characteristic usually only found in carbon steels). AEB-L steel was designed for razors, which need corrosion resistance, high hardness, and very acute edges. Once you try a knife that is made with AEB-L, you'll immediately understand why it is coveted by knife enthusiasts, knifemakers, and professional chefs. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge. The blade is beautifully thin for effortless slicing. The spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort. A hand rubbed satin finish lends a timeless, heirloom quality. Reed's maker mark is on the right side of the blade.
Dark toned, walnut handle scales are set on the tapered full tang using brass pins. The sculpted handle is comfortable in both a pinch grip and a full handle grip. Like other knives, this knife should not go in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout! This nimble paring knife is sure to become a kitchen favorite!
