Creating small or intricate cuts requires a knife with a shorter blade.  The Chroma P09 Type 301 3.25″ Paring Knife is just the knife for this job.  Peeling apples, oranges, potatoes, and other fruits and vegetables is easy with this 7.7cm knife.  This knife can also be used for everyday basic utility tasks in the kitchen.

High-quality Japanese 301 steel is used to make up the blade of the Chroma P09 Type 301 Paring Knife. The handle of the paring knife is crafted from stainless steel. These two metals were melded together to create a seamless, hygienic knife.

Chroma Type 301 Knives must be hand washed after every use.  Never place these knives in the dishwasher, as it could damage and dull the blade.  A dull knife blade is the single most common cause of knife related injury in the kitchen.  Type 301 Knives should only be sharpened using the original Type 301 whetstone.  Using a sharpening steel could damage the blade.  To help maintain the edge of your knife only use wooden or plastic cutting boards.  It is recommended that Type 301 knives be sharpened daily when used in a professional setting, and about every six months for hobby cooks.
