Tojiro Bird's Beak Paring knife is mostly used in a professional kitchen for peeling or carving fruits and vegetables and is especially essential to tourne vegetables (a French staple technique). It will come in handy in a home kitchen too, especially with peeling spherical fruits and veggies, although the standard shaped paring/petty knife should also do the trick.

This paring knife is part of the Tojiro's DP knife series, featuring a popular VG-10 core steel, clad into two layers of softer steel for easier sharpening. A durable and fairly light stamina wood handle is used, allowing for an ergonomic and fatigue-less grip. It features a stainless bolster and three rivets for a secure handle fixation, reducing the possibility for cracks in the handle.
