The Steelport 4” Paring Knife is designed for a high level of maneuverability and application. A paring knife is an essential tool and the second most frequently used knife in the kitchen after a chef knife. The smallest knife in the Steelport lineup, the perfect complement to the 8" and 6” Chef Knives, using the same materials, handcrafted methods, and rigorous attention to detail.
It’s a perfect choice for any "minimalist" who enjoys a tool that can multitask. Its unique shape and size allow the 4” Paring Knife to perform many functions of a petty or utility knife as well, from preparing smaller produce like shallots and garlic to light precision butchering tasks such as processing small game birds and trimming fat.
Steelport knives have solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster for a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Through Steelport's proprietary differential heat treatment, American Carbon Steel achieves an unmatched hardness at the blade for exceptionally long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold.
