Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
Tojiro Bird's Beak Paring 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 Damascus knife series, featuring a popular VG-10 core steel with the hardness of 61 HRC, clad into 36 layers of softer stainless steel, featuring a beautiful Damascus pattern.
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese D-shaped 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.
Tojiro is one of the top 5 largest Japanese kitchen knife manufacturers. They are renowned across Japan and internationally for their top-quality knives for a reasonable price.
