Two small but beautifully formed paring knives made from carbon steel. They have 8cm and 11cm blades and a boxwood handle.
These sharp knives are crafted by a 100 year old Spanish factory, Palllares, that prides itself on making the highest quality knives.
Carbon steel is harder than stainless steel and will hold its edge longer before needing to be sharpened. However, carbon steel requires more care than stainless steel. It is natural for carbon steel to develop a patina over time. Always keep the knife dry, as carbon steel will rust if it remains wet. Use a blade oil to keep it sharp and reduce the likelihood of rust.
A joy to use, these knives are a cook's dream.
