Midori Hamono Paring Knife
Midori Hamono knives set a stellar example for pragmatic tools made beautifully. Handmade in Japan, the blade has a professional grade VG-10 stainless core with 15 layers of laminated stainless Damascus cladding, and a "tsuchime" or hammer marked finish. The dappling of the hammer marks prevent materials from sticking to the side of the knife. The 4 inch blade is a western-style full tang, strong against rust and easy to sharpen. The handle is mahogany, triple pinned, well weighted and high polished for hand comfort. A paring knife is an important tool for deft cuts and quick, safe hand work. Comes in a beautiful, giftable box.
