I have several Kaji knives and they all have their special purpose. I've had the paring knife for just over a year and just had it sharpened for the first time.
Paring knives aren't typically used on a cutting board, but rather in hand . . .but if a board is used, a good wooden cutting board will add greatly to the time between sharpening.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Sharpness, Weight
