Nick Rossi's culinary tools are instantly recognizable, always put function first, and stand apart in the best ways. With this hand-forged paring knife Nick again succeeds in all of these areas, combining a slim, razor-sharp, tapering carbon steel blade with sculpted bubinga wood handle in integral bolster construction. The 1078 carbon steel edge measures 88mm / 3.5" long, perfect for detail and handheld work, with satin-finished bevels and hammer marks left intact above and behind as the material transitions into the stepped-down bolster. The handle is carved with gently curved facets and secured with a single steel pin. A beautiful and very handy knife for any chef's kitchen.
