This is a small multipurpose paring/petty knife used to peel, cut, de-seed and tourné vegetables and fruit, as well as do other tasks like de-veining shrimp. It is an essential tool for bartenders who serve fresh fruit garnishes.
This knife is made honyaki style, with one piece of high carbon steel, and with a 55/45 edge, it can easily be sharpened to suit your preference, whether you are right or left handed.
The G-type series is Nenohi’s premier line and comes with the P-Maicarta handle. More affordable than the SD series, it performs to Nenohi’s exacting standards.
* According to Nenohi Cutlery even though the bevel angle is 55:45 it can still be used by lefties.
However, you can easily sharpen it to 45:55 for optimum use.
