The Almost 4" Knife

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 56 reviews

As featured in GQ, Rolling Stone, Vogue, and more. Practically a miniature of our 8” chef’s knife, this petite paring knife packs a punch, with the same three layers of high-carbon and corrosion-resistant stainless Japanese steel. Its pointy tip and sharp edge make it the go-to for controlled slicing and dicing.

The Almost 4" Knife

Small but mighty

A knife is only as good as the precision of its cut. In pursuit of ultimate sharpness, we were inspired by narrow-tipped Japanese knives and tested numerous angles before landing on a 13° edge on each side.

The Almost 4” Knife has a solid grip and pointy tip, which is ideal for detailed tasks like peeling fruits and veggies, de-seeding peppers, or de-veining shrimp.

At finishing, each knife is hand-polished, then heat-treated at 300°F before being cryogenically tempered at a well-beyond freezing -250°. This process alters the structure of the steel on a molecular level, making it harder, sharper, and more durable.

We integrated the classic oval shape of Japanese handles into our design, but used an innovative, stain-resistant composite material in a matte finish to make ours firm and slightly grippy, for safe and confident chopping.

The result? Just the right weight, just the right balance, and that perfect feels-just-right-in-your-hand sensation.

Perfect paring knife

This knife puts my previous (Wüsthof) paring knives to shame. It feels very solid and balanced in the hand and cuts effortlessly for prep tasks. I wish I had this knife years ago.

Cheese and Fruit and Veggies--oh, my!

My favorite little utility knife!! Love it for the bits and pieces work of slicing cheese and fruit for my lunch plate, and it does wonders cleaning out a pepper of seeds. A good weight in the hand and smaller blade makes tricky cut maneuvers a simple exercise.
