This color-coded knife series is made exclusively for Williams Sonoma by Kai, one of Japan's largest and most historic cutlery companies. The paring knife adds bright color to food prep combined with super-sharp performance, lightweight handling and easy dishwasher cleaning. Its short blade excels for detail work such as peeling, coring and trimming. With a slightly wider blade than most parers, this one is ideal for transferring chopped garlic or herbs from the cutting board. High-carbon stainless-steel blade creates a razor-sharp cutting edge. Food-safe nonstick coating on blade is corrosion-resistant and speeds slicing and cleanup. Lightweight molded resin handle is contoured for a secure grip. Color-coded knives in this collection help prevent cross-contamination. Includes protective sheath for storage.
