    THE PARING

    These are small utility knives, similar to a Japanese petty knife, but at 130mm are large enough to work well on a cutting board as well as handheld. Like most great tools each cook will have their preferred use for each knife.

    1095 CARBON STEEL

    Carbon steel is well known to take a sharper edge than most common stainless steels and is easy to sharpen. But like all non-stainless steel blades will oxidize (rust) when damp and exposed to acidic foods. So it’s highly advisable to wipe and dry your knife after use. I recommend storing it on a magnetic knife rack for all to see.  Always take care when cleaning and drying blade, a sharp edge will penetrate the skin long before you have time to react.


    Tasmanian Blackwood  

    Boasting a variety of colours ranging from light golden brown to deep brown (sometimes with a reddish tint) and occasionally showing black streaks, the timber radiates a subtle beauty that makes it irresistible to Tasmanian designers. Additional character results from the grain of the wood, which can be straight or wavy with a natural lustre.
