White Steel #2 with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62 to 63, 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. 

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.

Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chef’s knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmer’s market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
