A large right-handed paring knife, thin blade, nice and pointy. For those more fiddly jobs around the kitchen.
The contrast of the highly polished and hammer finished blade and more subtle Japanese handle looks great and the good news is that this is also a well balanced lightweight knife and at the larger end of the "petty" scale it's perfect for a lot of jobs like peeling and chopping smaller items such as fruit and many vegetables.
Please note this handle is right-handed, although many left-handed people find it just as comfortable to use.
What we thought about this knife
We have personally tested and reviewed this knife to give you an honest and personal opinion about it and this is how it rates. Remember these scores are a reflection of the company these knives keep, all our knives are great (or we wouldn't sell them) but we can't give them all 5/5. A low score doesn't mean it's a poor knife, it just might be out-trumped by one of our other amazing knives.

What you get with the knife
The knife comes in its own red presentation box with a green liner and the blade is protected by a clear plastic cover.
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
