Description: This exceptional paring knife is the master work of bladesmith Kelly Dallyn. Kelly explains the maker's mark on his knives is his family's cattle brand, which has been passed down to his dad by his grandmother. He thought that when he started to make knives he would use something that stood the test of time to mark them. With this brand on his knives and the craftsmanship that he put into them, he knew they too would stand the test of time long after he is gone.
Paring knives are exceptional for detail tasks - from taking the eyes out of potatoes to removing the heads from tomatoes. This knife is a classic deep bellied European paring knife and will be perfect for regular use in the kitchen.
The blade is high performing AEB-L stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. AEB-L is an exceptional steel and is felt by many to be among the best stainless steels for kitchen knives. It is brought to a razor edge and has excellent strong edge geometry. A deep belly and a rounded heel are well thought out traits to Kelly's knives. The spine features 1 inch long section of gun checkering for a secure grip while doing detail work with wet hands.
The ironwood handle scales are dovetailed to the bolsters and have warm tones. The wood is secured by eight bronze pins -- resulting in a very strong handle and an attractive contrast. The 416 stainless steel bolsters are domed and polished for a perfect balance and an elegant appearance. Exceptional fit throughout.
