The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 4-inch Paring Knife features a Fibrox handle and extremely sharp blade that holds its edge.
The patented Fibrox handle is dishwasher safe and slip resistant, even when wet. It is also NSF approved, as crevices that would offer hospitality to bacteria are minimized. As with all R.H. Forschner knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a natural fit.
Forschner knives all have high carbon, stainless steel blades that are hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. Each knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished. Victorinox uses a special tempering process to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again.
This classic paring knife with its tapered tip is perfect for carving out the eye of a potato or the blemishes on a peach.
Recommended by Cook's Illustrated, August 2009, "This knife's sharp, agile blade and firm, comfortable grip can handle close work like paring fruit and slivering garlic."
