Description: South African knifemaker David Hoehler specializes in chef's knives. Given that he worked in some of the best kitchens in South Africa for nine years, it is no surprise that he brings a unique understanding the chef's primary tool.
You can think of a paring knife as a smaller version of a chef's knife because a 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 hand ground 12C27 stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden and heat treated to 60 Hrc. This steel takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. It also maintains high toughness, high chip resistance, and good corrosion resistance -- it is a well rounded choice for a high performing cutlery steel. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish and a nicely rounded spine and choil for comfort.
Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set stabilized maple burl handle scales to the full tang. The handle is contoured to swell at the palm and is extremely comfortable whether holding the knife in a pinch grip or holding the handle farther back. This elegant knife will hold up exceptionally well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen.
This knife is sure to become a kitchen favorite!
