The peelingtourné, or bird’s beak paring knife is a specialized paring knife designed for the tourné cut, a staple of fine French cuisine, as well as for other fine garnish work and for peeling fruits and vegetables.

Function

The tourné knife’s uniquely curved blade excels at precisely peeling curved fruits and vegetables. Its narrow tip allows it to easily slide under the skin of an onion or potato. In skilled hands, it can be used for other intricate garnish work.

Form

Sha Ra Ku Mono blades are forged from molybdenum-vanadium alloy stainless steel, which finely balances edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance. This material is slightly softer than the VG-10 steel used in other Tojiro knives and significantly harder than European knife steels.

The handle is made from hollow 18/8 stainless steel, crafted with the blade as a single piece. Much like a traditional wooden wa handle, its light weight keeps the knife's balance farther forward than on European knives. The ergonomic shape allows it to be gripped either by the handle or with a more versatile pinch grip.
