Small but mighty, the Master Shin’s Anvil Paring Knife can do anything from peeling fruit to deveining shrimp and zesting citrus with ease. The compact size and rounded handle make this knife a pleasure to hold, offering a perfect grip and control to the user at the same time. Like other kitchen knives from the Master Shin’s Anvil collection, this small paring knife is crafted by hand with age-old techniques. Each knife is skillfully made from strong railroad track steel that is fired at higher temperatures and then hammered for a thousand times to ensure the blade cuts sharply. Likewise, the handle is carefully crafted from chestnut or oak wood that has been left to dry naturally in the shade for several years.
