1803 Paring Knife
A paring knife is the little workhorse in any kitchen, a smaller utility knife perfect for peeling, dicing and chopping.
Our handsome paring knife has a hand-forged 8cm carbon steel blade with a full tang through the length of the knife handle to provide superior stability, balance and weight. It is then set between two formed scales of red deer antler and set with three small brass nails. Antler feels good in the hand, while also providing additional grip when wet – this is why antler handled knives are preferred by many of the world’s great chefs.
1803 knives are unique, celebrating the character of our natural antler and the traditional forging process with a distinctly Australian aesthetic. We choose to forge our blades with carbon steel as it has superior hardness and strength, which makes it easier to sharpen and ensures a longer life. Every 1803 knife is ruggedly handsome and completely traceable from our farm gate in Orange; our hand-forged blade collection has rare provenance that represents authentic Australian luxury.
Knives made from carbon steel will patina and tarnish, this is part of the blade’s inherent, rustic beauty. Please follow the care guide provided to maintain your knife in premium condition.
