    New paring knife design

    I have a customer that wanted a paring knife with a bit longer blade and a bit slimmer as well. You would think that designing these little knives would be a cinch, but they are a real bugger. This is the 5th or 6th one I have done. The blade is 3 inches long.
    I took the pic alongside one of my regular parings for comparison. Let me know what you guys think.
    Thanks,
    Del

    I think the additional length would be welcomed as some paring knives are a tad short imo, granted ive got big hands but I think this is a good idea

    I really like it. The lowered tip looks very functional.
