(click on icons for more knives)
Tojiro Petty Damascus 90mm, sometimes also called a paring knife, is a small and highly versatile kitchen knife. Paring knives offer more dexterity, precision, and maneuverability than the larger, multi-purpose knives, therefore its main tasks are peeling, slicing, and trimming.
Tojiro manufactures these blades from the good performing VG-10 steel with the hardness of 61 HRC, which is clad into 36 layers of softer stainless steel, featuring a beautiful Damascus pattern.
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese round Wa handle made of magnolia wood with a buffalo horn ferrule. The handle has an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users.
From the Tojiro's Shippu Damascus series we currently also carry:
