Mundial W05474 Spear Point Pairing Knife has a 4 inch blade that is made of high carbon steel. The blade does not stain, keeping a fresh a appearance no matter the amount of use. The spear point on the blade conjoins the sharp point a dagger would have with the strength of a drop point blade but still has the belly near the point in order to have even cuts and slices you're looking for. The sharp point allows for piercing of foods with an edge that is in line with the knifes' axis making the rise and fall of the knife as you slice even giving you complete control. The handle is white and has antimicrobial protection to reduce the contamination of foods as well.The handle was constructed from polypropylene material which is resistant to chemical solvents, acids and any other solvents making it a prime choice for heavy-volume, busy kitchen spaces. These are bought 3 per pack.
