The perfect knife for cutting small vegetables.
A real treasure in the palm of your hand.
The paring knife from the Wusaki Damas V10 series is as beautiful as it is efficient. Despite its small size, it gathers all the qualities that you can expect to find in a good kitchen knife: ergonomic, durable, and impressive design. Thanks to its originality and its elegance, the dazzling look of this knife guarantees love at first sight.
Made with a Japanese VG10 steel core that was polished by hand until it gets a razor sharp edge, this paring knife remains sharp 2 to 3 times longer than a knife made with European steel. Each knife from this series undergoes V-shaped sharpening done by hand with the use of a grinding band of leather so that you can make perfect cuts since the very first time!
The blade of this DAMAS VG10 paring knife is made of a steel that has a hardness level of 60 HRC and a VG10 steel core with 1% carbon content. This Japanese steel of high quality is much harder than the one that is found in most of the so-called best Western knives. It is thanks to its excellent characteristics and its remarkable durability that we have chosen this steel for all the knives for the Damas Olive range.
The blade has 67 layers of damask steel that create wavy lines that are unique to each single knife. The top part of the blade is also characterised for its hammered surface.
Equally important as the blade, the handle is made of noble olive wood characterised for its veinings, its astonishing design, and a comfortable grip.
Finally, the Japanese character engraved at the bottom of the handle provides that final touch that makes your knife truly stylish.
Wusaki knives are made in a small factory located in the north of Canton; the capital city of the Guangdong province in Western China. This province is historically known for its know-how in the production of steel knives. The good relations between France and China allowed us to find a serious partner with a human-size structure like ours. The expertise of Wusaki is entirely governed by the French manufacturing standards established by the professionals in the field. We are proud to have succeeded in the creation of a reliable work tool with a superb design and at a great price for our customers.
Wash by hand and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid to wet the handle as much as possible, even when washing the knife. Once in a while, you can wipe the handle with a cloth slightly soaked in olive oil to protect the wood.
