The Paring Knife is a necessity in any kitchen for making cuts that require both precision and agility.
Though I have been using the Kyotop series in my own kitchen for about four years, I am offering the Classic series on our site because there is little difference in quality and a large difference in price. All of these ceramic products are crafted with precision and beauty. After four years of use and proper care, my ceramic knives have never been sharpened and still remain many times sharper than any of my metal knives. They are perfectly balanced and surprisingly resilient when dropped. Additionally, ceramic products are non-corrosive meaning they impart no flavors to the food you prepare, which makes them perfect for cutting foods that will be eaten raw such as fruits and mushrooms. For the same reason they will not brown foods such as apples and potatoes. To properly take care of these knives, and all knives, I suggest a few tips: use the right knife for the job, cut on a wood or plastic cutting board, wash and dry by hand, and store in a sheath, box, or towel. Your knife will come to you in a box that is great for storage. In the case that these knives do become dull, Kyocera (the manufacturer) will re-sharpen them for only a nominal shipping and handling fee.
