Le P'tit Tradi Paring Knife

Le P'tit Tradi translates to "the little traditional" and is an apt description for this paring knife, which is based on an original Coutellerie Goyon-Chazeau design. As the story goes, Madam Goyon and her friends were tired of using dull knives to peel and cut vegetables for the communal lunch they shared. So she asked her husband Gabriel to make a small knife adapted specifically for the task. And so, Le P'tit Tradi was born, and today it remains a reliable tool for slicing, cutting, and peeling vegetables and more. 

Handmade in the Goyon-Chazeau workshop in Thiers, France, this superior quality knife is made from one of the best cutlery steels available: Sandvik 14C28N steel, enriched with carbon. The ebony and sapwood handle is smooth and comfortable in the hand, as any frequently reached-for tool should be. The two-toned wood has marked shades ranging from honey to brown. Also called Mozambic ebony, it is the hardest, densest, and most waterproof of all raw woods.

Available in a larger version: take a look at Le Grand Tradi chef knife, too!

  • We recommend washing the P’tit Tradi by hand with a soft sponge.
  • Do not leave the handle in prolonged contact with water or a heat source.
  • Wood handled knives should never go in the dishwasher. 
  • Wipe off as soon as washing is finished.

  • Sharpen the cutting edge as soon as the knife seems to give more resistance when cutting.
