2" Mini Paring Knife Ironwood

The kitchen scalpel. 
This small chef knife works large miracles on delicate jobs. Ideal for hand held work, the extra small blade and ample handle master the nitty gritty of fine details. Great for coring, peeling and decorative work on fruits and vegetables, as well as all the subtle touches in fine recipes.

Cutting edge design = paring proficiency.
Most paring knives are very "pointy" and often unintentionally dig into fruit and vegetables interrupting the flow of cuts. The G-Fusion Mini Paring knife has a modified "Drop Point Design" which results in a more "forgiving" knife that doesn't get stuck when, for example, coring an apple or removing the eyes of a potato. Once you get used to this unique shape, you'll love it and never want to use another paring knife. The broad belly and generous curve are particularly perfect for those who tend use a paring knife for everything. Though the blade is small, the handle is ample- giving the blade a firm agility in the hand. 

S35VN: America's best steel
Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients. The G-Fusion line features the highest performing knife steel on the market-- S35VN “Powder Metal” steel. This high carbon, alloyed steel has it all: elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance and sharpenability. G-Fusion knives are made in the US with American steel and backed by a lifetime guarantee. 

Desert Ironwood

**Please note: this is a natural material and each handle will have it's own unique grain patterns**

As the first major addition to our chef knife collection since switching to G10 handles for our "G-Fusion" line, New West KnifeWorks is proud to offer our line of Desert Ironwood S35VN chef knives. After months of testing various hardwoods and laminate woods for durability, water resistance, and overall look and feel, the richly textured desert ironwood rose to the top.
Because desert ironwood grows in such water-depleted environments, its grain structure is incredibly dense (so dense that it sinks in water), which leads it to have incredible strength and durability. In fact - this wood is so hard that it takes more material and time for our production team to get the scales shaped into New West' smooth and ergonomic knife handles.
To care for this material, we recommend avoiding harsh soaps or solvents on the handle (a little dish soap now and then is fine). The deep colors and rich shine quickly come back to life with a bit of mineral oil applied with a rag. No lacquer or sealant is applied to the ironwood, so it will readily absorb the oil and look shiny and new all over again.
