This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
Well balanced paring knife, I use at work 3-5 times a week and holds a good edge to about 1000+ citrus slices. Sharpen once or twice a month and really doesn't need straightening. Quality product, great price. Delivery was fast too.
Well made knife, good blade shape, works well in hand (as a paring knife should). Haven't sharpened it yet, so I can't comment on that, but this indicates that it holds an edge well. It resides on the counter (not in a drawer), and is used regularly. I'm glad I got it.
This has been one of my favorite knives that I use at home for over 10 years. The carbon steel is extremely sharp and holds an edge for a very long time . I recently Purchased 3 more of these for each of my sous chefs as Christmas presents so I could share a great product with someone else .
Transaction was a breeze
Very good paring knife. Must have in your kitchen. Just to take care about rust but this is not a big deal ! I recommend this purchase. Misono is a fantastic brand, even for the entry range "Handmade".
