- verified customerWife says it hit all the sweet spots: right girth,heft, height, and length. For her delicate feminine hand, she declares it as a perfect match. The paring knife is largely used as one hand cutting, sometimes carefully navigating its way into a bowl or pot. Of course, she claims that what the in-house sharpener did was "vital." Besides improving the cutting edge, the heel was rounded, and the choil was dulled. She has cut herself once but her thumb still feels surprisingly safe. Prior paring knife was a wustof and this Kohetsu is described as "light years better." Personally, the weak link is the handle. I still need to epoxy the gap. A metal ferrule would have been a better solution. Most paring knives of this quality cost a minimum of 30 dollars more. Still, I would have paid a little more for a few tweaks to the handle. Otherwise, five stars all the way.
