Imojiya line is a budget-friendly western-handled series. The ST series of paring knives are an excellent choice for beginners thanks to their minimum rust management and high level of fit and finish. Being slightly thicker than the Imojiya ST SG2, this blade offers great durability while sporting an elegant Damascus pattern reminiscent of ocean waves on a beach. For those interested in their first paring knife or those seeking a unique piece for their collection, look no further than the Imojiya ST Tsuchime Damascus.
A paring knife is often used for many in-hand tasks such as coring, peeling, and trimming; think apples, artichokes, various fruits and garlic etc. It is an extremely versatile tool that when you get a really good one, you start to wonder how you managed to cook all these years without it.
