The Dalstrong Phantom Series 4” paring knife is a precision specialist, engineered for coring, mincing and peeling fruits and vegetables; slicing shallots, herbs or cloves of garlic; detailed, controlled cutting, such as cutting shapes or vents into dough; and scoring patterns and designs on surfaces of food. As indispensable as the chef’s knife, this paring knife is slightly longer than average giving you a little extra slicing surface area.
Featuring Japanese AUS-8 steel beautifully engraved with the Dalstrong name down the spine as well as the Japanese kanji for ‘phantom’ or ‘ghost’. Each blade is painstakingly hand sharpened using the traditional honbazuke method, bringing the edge to a razor sharp 13-15 degrees, ensuring swift, effortless cuts. Precision forged from a single piece of ice tempered steel, the blade features a narrower width for improved agility and maneuverability, with a traditional Japanese D-shaped black pakkawood handle designed to tuck perfectly in the palm of your hand. Near the bolster a distinct red spacer and carefully crafted mosaic of copper and brass ensures added elegance and refinement. A hand-polished end cap creates counter balance, ensuring the nimble blade feels more like a ghostly extension of your body, than an ordinary kitchen tool. A premium-quality polymer Dalstrong saya (sheath) is included.
