A staple blade of American Chefs and in American kitchens, this paring knife took months of development, fusing our classic FTT styles with the craftsmanship and tradition of our Forge and the needs of a great paring knife.


Paring knives are perfect for small precise prep and delicate work. From peeling vegetables to dicing fruit, the 3.5 inch blade gives you tons of control with enough room to work medium tasks. With the razor sharp edge of all our knives on this small blade, you have laser like control for garnishes. 


The VG10 steel is more resilient than full carbon steel, yet it sharpens with ease, allowing a finer edge. The durability of VG10 steel prevents dulling and rusting.

The "kurouchi", or blacksmith finish, is the signature of our forge in Southeast China. By laminating the blade in carbon it protects the core steel from the elements and adds the stunning look.
