Delicate in colour and economical in design and material use, this little beauty is a tribute to upcycling.
Regaining status after being repurposed from a disused furniture stash, the bamboo handle of this compact paring knife has been imbued with life, charm and vigour again.
Still sporting the marks it received along the way, the aluminium pins that used to hold it prisoner within an unloved household fixture now twinkle like silver glitter alongside the copper pins that hold the handle in place - a salute to former times.
The soft pink of the kirinite bolster lends it a softness on the eye while the sharp edge of the satin finish N690 stainless steel blade reminds you of its purpose as a tough versatile little kitchen knife.
Useful for everything from removing eyes from kumaras and potatoes to delicately removing skins from fruit or dicing small meats and vegetables, this is a great knife for cooks that want to work in small and closeup ways when preparing meals.
It is a great companion alongside larger knives in the kitchen but can also stand and do the hard yards on its own at meal preparation time.
Bamboo and Orchid Pink Paring Knife
All handcrafted knives need to be cleaned and oiled after use to maintain the blade and handle in good condition.
