NORA Paring Knife #1001 - Ruby Red Shokwood

Sold out.

The paring knife is often overlooked but the truth is it is one of the single most-used knives in the kitchen. It is also unique with respect to where it is used...not just on a cutting board but also in hand. 

With this in mind, we redesigned our paring knife to have a smaller, more nimble handle that feels great in hand and gives its user a wide amount of maneuverability. This knife works wonderful for small tasks that are easier completed by using the knife in-hand, such as hulling a strawberry, paring fruit, or deveining shrimp.

Each of our knives is handmade and numbered. This NORA paring knife (#1001) is handled with a base of ruby red shokwood and black G10 liners. It's a classic look and it should serve as an excellent work horse in any kitchen.

This knife blade is composed of AEB-L stainless steel which is a high quality Swedish metal, originally developed for razor blades.  Recently, steel suppliers have made this steel available in thicker sheets and it has proven to be an excellent adaptation for the cutlery industry.

AEB-L has a beautiful balance of carbon and chromium and, with proper heat treatment, this steel produces both a very fine edge as well as excellent toughness and edge stability.  The fine grain structure also makes this steel very easy to sharpen. We believe it is one of the finest stainless steels available on the market today for use with kitchen knives.

As a side note, this steel responds beautifully to honing and if the knife is honed regularly it should need infrequent sharpening.
