This paring blade is unique in shape and finish. The taller than usual profile is great for detailed work on small vegetables and fruits. The core steel is a very rust-resistant steel called SLD which holds an amazing edge under Yoshikane smith's treatment. The finish of polished stainless damascus pattern juxtaposed with rustic kurouchi (blacksmith's) finish is just perfectly executed. Great as a gift that will be memorable for years to come.
