The perfect paring knife. I looked all over and couldn't find one short enough to fit me. The blade on this one is 2 1/2" and it's got that super-comfortable Rader handle. Pick it up and it becomes part of you. (No, Spike, I don't mean pick it up by the pointy end!) This would be the last one out the door. The other knives may be great, but this one. is. perfect.
