Blacksmith's Paring Knife

Hand-forged in Red Hook, Brooklyn by chef and bladesmith Will Griffin, the Blacksmith’s Paring Knife is simple, handy and exceptionally versatile. Hammered from 52100 carbon steel and heat treated for a hard, sharp and toothy, thin edge, the tall profile, tapering from a sturdy 3mm at the spine above the heel to less than 0.8mm approaching the tip, makes this a superb user for both detail work, precise slices, and larger cuts when a long blade is not necessary.
