This curved blade paring knife is just the right size for zesting citrus, peeling a pear, de-veining shrimp or other tight tasks a recipe requests of you. Don't be fooled by its size; this small knife is one of the most difficult for Master Shin to produce.
Handle: chestnut or oak wood, shade-dried for years to achieve the correct weight, stability and water resistance. Blade: made from the strong steel used for railroad tracks.
L: 7.25" (4.33" handle; 2.75" L blade; 1.25" W blade at widest point)
No need to sharpen before 2-3 years of regular use. After which point, sharpen by hand, using a honing stone. Avoid use on hard surfaces. Wipe clean with soft cloth or use water only. Clean and dry thoroughly to prevent rust. To store, dry and lightly oil the surface.
