Great little paring knife. holds an edge for what seems like an eternity. Long handle nicely balances the blade. Highly stain-resistant,unlike some MACs.
Small,thin,and sharp,I really like this Mac parer. I like Mac Pros as a step up in fit,finish,and blade geometry from Tojiro,while still providing a great bargain price. Really easy to sharpen as well.

Love all of my MAC knives. This one no exception
It came dull out of the box,which is surprising for MAC. F&F was poor,with noticeable gaps where the wood meets the metal tang. Handle and profile of the knife don’t work well for my large hands,leaving too much distance between the knife and the food. The heel of the knife is too thick,which is also counterproductive for me.
Good thing is it is very stain resistant.
The Shun is superior to this in all ways but the stain-resistance. Total let down for me,since I love the MAC Pro 9.5" Chef’s knife and the Superior Bread Knife so much. (both of which get 5 stars in my book)
This a Great Paring knife,I had originally purchased a Tojiro paring Knife but I found that its blade (Even Though Its Sharp)is a little thick on the top which makes it extremely difficult to cut through vegetables like Potatoes and Carrots,but the MAC glides rite through them.
I love this little paring knife. It just fits the hand so nicely. Out of box sharpness is excellent. Great balance and blade profile. I find that 3.5 inches is the sweet spot for me on a paring knife and this falls just short of that. I have two paring knives in my block. This one and a Shun. I much prefer this over the Shun.
