Bird’s Beak / Turning knife
A Bird's Beak peeling knife has a curved blade and is often used for many of the same tasks as paring knives. It can be used to cut decorative garnishes and intricately slice veggies. The angle of the point gives extra control without needing to angle your wrist to make cuts.
About Tojiro: Tojiro is a knife-making giant in Japan. While they have a small factory that produces incredible hand-forged knives, their true specialty is factory-made knives. In Japan, “factory-made” isn’t what most people think. While the blades are rolled and stamped, much of the work is done by hand including grinding and finishing steps. Tojiro primarily works with VG-10, a stainless steel loved for its ease of sharpening and easy maintenance, but they also use VS2, SK85 and others.
