Tojiro Bird's Beak Paring Black Damascus 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 Black Damascus knife series, featuring popular VG-10 core steel with the hardness of 61 HRC, clad into 36 layers of softer stainless steel, featuring a beautiful Black Damascus pattern with a mirror finish below the damascus.

The blade extends into a traditional Japanese D-shaped Wa handle made of chestnut wood with a black plastic ferrule. The handle has an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users.
