The STEELPORT 4” Paring Knife is designed for a high level of maneuverability and application. A paring knife is an essential tool and the second most frequently used knife in the kitchen after a chef knife. The smallest knife in the STEELPORT lineup, their team designed the 4” Paring Knife to perfectly complement the STEELPORT 8" and 6" Chef Knife, using the same materials, handcrafted methods and rigorous attention to detail.

It’s a perfect choice for any "minimalist" who enjoys a tool that can multitask. Its unique shape and size allows the 4” Paring Knife to perform many functions of a petty or utility knife as well, from preparing smaller produce like shallots and garlic, to light precision butchering tasks such as processing small game birds and trimming fat.

Blade Shape

The sheepsfoot tip allows the blade to have a flatter profile which means it can make more contact with the board. It is intentionally taller and larger than an average paring knife, allowing for precision without being too delicate, and the contoured handle provides a comfortable close grip for finer control and finesse. The longer-than-average 4” length allows for use on a cutting board and finer kitchen tasks as well as use holding in-hand for peeling and coring.

Blade Material / Heat Treat

STEELPORT knives have solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster for a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Through STEELPORT’s proprietary differential heat treatment, American 52100 Carbon Steel achieves an unmatched 65HRC hardness at the blade for exceptional long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer 30HRC spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold.

Handle

The more generous overall size, contoured handle, and rounded spine of the STEELPORT 4” Paring Knife allows for more comfort and versatility than a typical paring knife. For all STEELPORT handles, they use Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl, a naturally unique burl wood, stabilized with resin to meet tough kitchen requirements and won’t shrink or swell.

Care & Use

Carbon Steel is for those who take pride in keeping their tools at peak performance through basic maintenance. Carbon Steel knives like STEELPORT are not stain or rust resistant. Day to day, it is as simple as remembering to hand wash and dry after each use. Learn more about Carbon Steel Knife Care and Use.
