Good small paring knives are hard to find, but I love this one from Alex Horn. At 86x18mm this is a slim and sharp knife that will excel at all in hand work. High quality Aeb-l stainless steel sharpens beautifully and takes a great edge, and gets it back quickly and easily too. There is no better apple peeling knife out there. Beautifully done well sculpted bocote and micarta frame constructed handle.
