And Tojiro does VG-10 right.

I've owned about 30 paring knives over the last 5 years. Short of a $300 Takeda, this is my favorite parer. It's quality blows away Shun, Kyocera, Wusthof, Global, and other mid-low end brands as such which tend to be sensationalized far above their quality/performance.

Steel-wise, this is a VG-10 laminate treated to high-hardness (60.5 HRC IIRC). When done right, VG-10 is an excellent steel. And Tojiro does VG-10 right. It holds an edge pretty well, it has a lot of toughness, and it has excellent corrosion resistance. And it is easy to sharpen. Unlike Shun's VG-10, the heat treatment on Tojiro's VG-10 yields a good performing knife and is not "chippy" like Shuns often are. At the same time, they are not overly thick like many other parers, so they are still great slicers.

The edge geometry on this knife is excellent. The grind is consistent, the angle is consistent, the finishing was well-done, and the tip was perfectly shaped.

Fit and finish wise, this knife blows most anything else in its price away. The micarta handle is fit like a glove, the rivets are finished perfectly, the brush lines are smooth, and no overly sharp or overly ground portions are on the knife. It feels like a much more expensive knife than it is.

I also think this blade is by far the best design for a parer. Using a single and totally flat plane, you have a flat surface and are left with a "beak tip" that allows you to perform a few small knife functions where control is a must and an upsweeping tip is not ideal. Coring, boning, center slicing, etc. work well. The expense is you cannot do rocking cuts with this knife, but I do not know anyone who uses the Fulcrum motion with a knife under 6 inches, let alone 3.5.

I purchased this knife as a Christmas present for myself two years ago and it's become my favorite knife. It feels well in my hand, it stays sharp, and cuts with ease. Some handles are difficult, if not downright unfriendly, for those of us who have arthritis in our hands, but this knife works.

I have been putting this medium-large paring knife through its paces for several weeks now. It was sharp when I got it. I like VG10 steel, but I do not like sharpening it. You must take care of the burr. This is a medium hard steel with superior performance in every way so long as you can maintain it. To be clear, this is in no way a high maintenance knife; the sharp blade stays sharp for longer than I expected.

It outperformed my paring knife in its ability to articulate small spaces with its tip. It was just as sharp but better on a full draw towards me.

I use a ceramic wand instead of a sharpening steel to set up the teeth between sharpening because steels are nearly always too soft. When I had this knife sharpened, the VG 10 came alive. Now I love this for decorative work as well as the everyday paring duties accomplished by this substantial blade.

Sharp knife for small jobs made with VG-10 steel. This knife is great for small jobs and detail work. If you have water stones, you can get far more out of this knife than originally but I wouldn't go higher than a 3000 grit edge.

A pairing knife is inherently simple, but there are so many crappy ones out there. This one is well made however, with quality workmanship, and material. I bought another one as a gift for a friend, I thought so highly of it. It did not get five stars right now, simply because I have not had it long enough to observe it's edge keeping, or sharpening abilities. It arrived promptly, and quite sharp.
Well worth the money in my opinion.
Changed the rating to five stars, now that I've used it for several months. I bought a third one as a gift for my aunt. The tang and handle were changed a little. I almost kept it and gave her my old one. I'm picky about my knives, and like these.

Razor sharp, full tang, well balanced and great value for what you pay. Easily exceeds quality and sharpness and quality of my Wustof knives. Like any quality tool you need to take care of it. Don't throw it in a drawer without some sort of protection. The knife comes in a box with a plastic shield for the blade which should work for short term. Handwash only and keep your fingers away from the blade. Reviews and comments regarding the sharpness of this blade are not exaggerations.

Got this knife for my mom for Christmas, her old junkie serrated one just wasn't worth the effort anymore.

It came packaged beautifully and securely, and the fit and finish is all perfect. But that's not what you buy a knife for, is it?

It came razor sharp out of the box, and I'm very picky about the sharpness on my blades. Overall I highly recommend it. It's a bit of an investment, but I could tell it was well worth it the second I saw it.
