It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans. Sometimes called a Peeling knife, the Paring knife resembles a small chef's knife and has a medium sized blade that can maneuver through both small and big jobs. A razor sharp Paring knife can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, performing just as well for bigger jobs such as preparing meals.
Our Yoshihiro Mazaki series are crafted by our master artisans with the utmost care to create high quality knives that offer exceptional performance with exceptional value. White Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 63 to 64, is intricately forged with iron to create a Black-Forged Kurouchi finish on the blade and consists of the carbonized coating created during heat treating and provides for a characteristic look and a rustic aesthetic to the blade. Our Yoshihiro Mazaki Series is complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Octagonal-Shaped Chestnut handle affixed with a Water Buffalo horn bolster.
This Paring will soon become the go-to knife in your kitchen. The difference will be felt right away when a hand forged Japanese Paring knife of incomparable sharpness is used for smaller precision tasks such as peeling, trimming, and slicing small fruits and vegetables to handling bigger tasks as a small chefs knife. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted
knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
