Paring Knife - 1803

Nose to tail

Nothing Compares

Just because your lunch break doesn’t involve washing the dirt off your hands and hacking away at a chunk of cheddar and a green apple on the banks of a secluded creek somewhere, doesn’t mean you should be denied the primal pleasure of this fine, carefully crafted tool. Both hat-toting chefs and food wanker-wannabes will tell you that the famed dexterity of the paring knife is all thanks to its petite, pointed blade. Small enough to peel a cumquat and sharp enough to pierce a shellfish, this one has been hand forged from stainless steel by one of Tasmania’s most famous cutlers, Tom Hounslow. It has been set in a piece of naturally shed red deer antler from the Hansen’s top grade venison farm with its form left in tact to enhance both grip and aesthetic. Casually perched on an after-dinner cheese board or tossed aside after a fit of minestrone making, it gives both chef and kitchen an air of confident, minimalist flair.
