Order The Perfect Pairing Knife in Time for The Holidays

The 2017 holiday season is nearly upon us, and the perfect paring knife is a wonderful gift option for the professional or casual chef in your life.

We’ve been touting the wonderful EDGES Custom Cutlery line for quite some time now, and with good reason. Edges Custom Cutlery is a line of cutlery developed by designer Anthony Michael Salerno and his father Peter Salerno (Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer) to bring pro chefs and serious home chefs some of the finest performing ergonomic cutlery that can be offered.

EDGES Perfect paring knife

Since EDGES’ inception in 2015, the line of custom cutlery has been highly regarded by its buyers, as well as some highly notable chefs and kitchen artisans. One such review came from Mary A. Moulds, the Culinary Events Manager for Miele USA:

All I can is “Wow”! Where I am normally grabbing 5-6 different knives to do particular things in the kitchen, I was able  to call 3 knives my “go-to” for the evening. There was so much versatility and flexibility in these knives that served dual purposes for the novice or experienced chef.

EDGES Perfect paring knife

EDGES Custom Cutlery recently released a fleet of Perfect Paring Knives in time for the 2017 holiday season. These 4″ paring knives feature full tang construction and are entirely handmade by master knifemaker Aldo Bruno, with custom design by Anthony Michael Salerno.

Each knife is made to order, ensuring that your EDGES Perfect Paring Knife is truly one-of-a-kind, and unique to any other paring knife on the market. Each custom knife order comes with your choice of handle material, pin material, and color (if stabilized wood).

In addition, each 4″ paring knife features an AEB-L stainless blade with satin finish. The liner material is Black Micarta.

This article features several of your options for EDGES’ Perfect Paring Knife this season, including olive and red stabilized wood handles and a gorgeous option featuring American White Oak taken from wine barrel staves.
