Victorinox Forschner 40007 Paring Tourne Bird's Beak, Light Wood Handle, 2.5 Inch Curved Bird Beak Blade. This Forschner Paring Knife features a bird's beak tip, allowing for tourne cuts, fluted mushrooms, and rosettes as well as simple tasks like removing blemishes from potatoes and cutting softer fruits. It has a rosewood handle, adding a touch of class to any culinary setting. As with all Victorinox knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a natural fit. Hand-washing of wooden handles is recommended.
The blade has an exceptionally keen, razor-sharp edge. The high carbon, stainless steel blade is hand finished by skilled craftsmen at Victorinox in Switzerland. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again. Each Victorinox knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished.
