Product information

The Steelport 4” Paring Knife is designed for a high level of maneuverability and versatility. An essential tool and the second most frequently used knife in the kitchen after a chef knife, this compact knife perfectly complements the Steelport 8" and 6” Chef Knife, maintaining the same materials, handcrafted methods, and rigorous attention to detail.

This knife is an excellent choice for those who appreciate multitasking tools. With its unique shape and size, the 4” Paring Knife can perform many functions of a petty or utility knife as well. It's versatile for tasks such as preparing smaller produce like shallots and garlic, as well as light precision butchering tasks such as processing small game birds and trimming fat.

Blade Shape: The sheepsfoot tip allows the blade to have a flatter profile, making more contact with the cutting board. Taller and larger than an average paring knife, it balances precision with durability. The contoured handle provides a comfortable close grip for finer control and finesse. The longer-than-average 4” length allows for use on a cutting board and finer kitchen tasks, as well as holding it in hand for peeling and coring.

Blade Material/Heat Treat: The Steelport 4” Paring Knife features solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster, ensuring a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Through Steelport’s proprietary differential heat treatment, American 52100 Carbon Steel achieves an unmatched 65HRC hardness at the blade for exceptional long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer 30HRC spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold.

Handle: The Steelport 4” Paring Knife is designed with a more generous overall size, contoured handle, and rounded spine for enhanced comfort and versatility. For all Steelport handles, Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl, a locally sourced, naturally unique burl wood stabilized with resin to meet tough kitchen requirements, is used. It won't shrink or swell, ensuring the handle's longevity.

Sheath: Keep your edge protected with an included custom-fitted Steelport 4” Paring Knife Sheath, made of caramelized Oregon Maple, and featuring an internal recessed magnet along the spine—no pin needed.

Care & Use: Carbon Steel is for those who take pride in keeping their tools at peak performance through basic maintenance. Carbon Steel knives like Steelport are not stain or rust-resistant. Day-to-day, it is as simple as remembering to hand wash and dry after each use.


NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
