Yoshihiro Hiryu Ginsan High Carbon Stainless Steel Paring Utility Knife Ebony Handle with Nuri Saya CoverProduct Code: FGIWAPR90EHNR
Ginsanko blends traditional methods of knife making with modern metallurgy. Ginsanko is a breakthrough in the incorporation of high carbon steel and stain resistant metallic elements. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, they offer a rare combination of traditional Japanese high carbon knives with stainless steel properties. The Yoshihiro Hiryu Ginsan Series has a higher level of finishing and polish than our standard Yoshihiro Ginsan and Hayate Ginsan knives.
Sometimes called a Peeling knife, the Paring knife resembles a small chef's knife and has a medium sized blade that can maneuver through both small and big jobs. A razor sharp Paring knife can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, performing just as well for bigger jobs such as preparing meals.
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.
