Wusthof Classic Ikon Sheep's Foot Paring Knife

Combining superb German craftsmanship and striking design, this sheep's-foot parer is uniquely shaped for precise straight-edge slicing, chopping and mincing of smaller foods. The hand-polished full-tang knife is triple riveted to the comfortable polypropylene handle for peerless stability. Compact blade has a nearly straight cutting edge with a hoof-shaped tip for smaller chopping, mincing and peeling tasks. Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control. A recessed bolster facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the cutting edge; a heel bolster provides added balance. Durable polymer handle is contoured for a comfortable grip. 3"-long blade; 3 1/2"-long handle; 2.5 oz. Made in Germany.

A sheep's foot paring knife is the go-to for small mincing/chopping tasks and, of course, paring fruits and veggies. I used another brand for years, but figured out what I was missing when I got this one as a gift. The knife has the pleasant size/heft ratio of the other Classic Ikon knives, while being a perfect complement to the 7-piece set. It's very sharp, has a comfortable handle and a blade that's thin enough for peeling potatoes, but not at all flimsy.
