Description: Rose City Knifeworks was founded in Portland, Oregon by Joe Walters and Paul Kolba.

Paring knives are a must-have for every kitchen. You can think of it as the mini version of the chef's knife because, like the chef's knife, the paring knife is quite versatile. The paring knife gets its name from its main function—removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It’s ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. Generally, you'll use this knife in your hand rather than against a cutting board, though paring knives can also be used for chopping small foods, such as garlic cloves or ginger.
The blade is formed from 52100 carbon steel steel and tempered to Rc 63. 52100 is considered by many knifemakers and knife users to be among the best steels ever used for knives. Makers like Mastersmith Bill Burke, Bob Kramer, and Ed Fowler have shown how incredible this steel can be. This carbon steel takes an increibly keen edge that just keeps on cutting. The distal tapered blade creates a perfect balance. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust. A rounded spine and choil ensures the knife will be comfortable even after hours of use.
The "Wa" style handle is octagon in shape and is sculpted from African blackwood with a black micarta ferrule and stainless steel spacers. This ambidextrous handle is easy to grip and lasts a lifetime. Dark toned African blackwood is combined with a black micarta ferrule. This ambidextrous handle is easy to grip and lasts a lifetime. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
