Elite Warikomi Damascus Paring
Our Price: $180.00
Kikuichi craftsmanship dates back seven centuries, and the cutlery still bears the emperor's chrysanthemum symbol of excellence, a legacy of its Samurai swordsmith history. The Kikuichi Elite 3" paring knife is hand-hammered for appearance and functionality, providing air pockets to keep food from sticking to the blade. The Warikomi core is clad with 16 layers of Damascus-style folded steel and the exterior is hand-forged to provide stability, toughness and beauty to the blade. Crafted with a full tang for exceptional balance, these knives are made with a durable VG-10 stainless core which provides excellent edge retention. Paring knives are ideal for peeling and other intricate work such as de-veining shrimp, removing jalapeño seeds, or cutting small garnishes.
