These knives have a Super Aogami (Blue Paper) steel core with a very high hardness rating that is super easy to resharpen. The core steel is sandwiched between layers of stainless steel. These knives are made from some of the best materials without a high price tag.
As with all Carbon steel knives, these blades will react to any food they come in contact with and should be wiped down and cleaned well before being put away for storage.
The small all-purpose knife that is known as the paring knife gets its name from its function. Pairing is defined as cutting away the outer surface and removing the ends from either fruit or vegetables. Used for the preparation of fruit or vegetables in meals, other functions include the removal of cores, precision peeling, removing seeds to trimming meats.
