MIU France 3-inch forged paring knife, item # 94028. Our high performance cutting tools were created to exceed the most exacting culinary standards of the world,s greatest chefs. Each knife is precision forged from a single blank of high carbon stainless steel and features an incredibly sharp, specially polished cutting edge. These knives have a distinctive bolster design that reduces fatigue and allows use of the entire cutting edge. The best way to maintain the knife's good condition is to sharpen it regularly - once a week for ordinary household use. Using a quality honing steel or sharpening stone will keep the knife's edge sharp and ready to use. These knives should be cleaned after every use. They are dishwasher safe; however, is always good practice to wash the knives by hand to preserve the integrity of the blades. 7.5" L x 0.75" W x 1" H.
