Under his own label "the nine", Melbourne based bladesmith Robert Trimarchi creates knives and other kitchen tools out of his humble workshop. Over the years, his knives have gained a reputation for excellent performance, a unique aesthetic, and a great degree of practicality and longevity. Each one of Robert's knives are made by himself from start to finish - from forging, heat treating, grinding, and crafting the fittings.
A paring knife forged from 1.2519 in a rather unique design. Made for both kitchen and non kitchen use, it can be used very comfortably with or without the wooden handle attached.
The handle and sheath are crafted from a single piece of timber, and can be further secured with the included cord. The blade can be conveniently removed from the handle for sharpening, or to make cutting on a surface easier. The tapered pin which locks the handle in place sits firmly in the hole - one side of the opening is larger than the other.
