Damascus Paring Knife

Hand-forged as close as possible to the final shape, this 386-layer Damascus Paring Knife from Reed Moore, of Red Forgeworks, has a 3.5" blade that has been marquenched and partially austempered to make it tough, wear resistant, and easy to make super sharp. The stabilized, old-growth cherry handle, adorned with brass Loveless bolts and a copper lanyard hole, fits the hand like a glove and comes from reclaimed wood from a turn-of-the-century church pew. Using time-honored hand-forging techniques, Reed has carefully engineered this Paring Knife for a lifetime of everyday use. Comes with a handmade leather carrying case.
