After the most successful Kickstarter knife project in history with their chef’s knife, Misen is back with a paring knife. As with their chef’s knife, the Misen Paring Knife combines thoughtful design with quality materials to create a knife that performs the same, if not better than, a knife that would cost five times as much from a “premium” brand. For the paring knife—or as they consider it, “your culinary scalpel”—that means the same premium Japanese high carbon steel (AICHI AUS-8) with a mirror polished edge and a 15 degree blade angle for a noticeably sharp cutting face. Whether you’re slicing peppers, peeling potatoes, mincing garlic or coring an apple, the precisely weighted and balanced Misen Paring Knife will make short work of anything you want to prepare. Misen stands behind their knives so much that they even have a lifetime sharpening program to make sure you’re getting the most out of your knives. The Misen Paring Knife ships mid-March.
