An excellent, versatile, paring knife!
This has become my favorite paring knife. Whether I'm peeling rutabaga, or digging out the black spots from some fresh farm carrots, this knife is a pleasure to use. The curved drop point blade works well for digging out those little unwanted spots on produce. It's light as a feather, and fits comfortably in my hand.
As with other FDick knives I own, the quality of their steel continues to impress me. It's hard enough that the edge stays straight, rarely getting dings or folding on itself. Yet it can still be worked with a honing steel, without chipping. After an initial sharpening on a whetstone, I have been able to keep this knife sharp with a honing steel alone.
