Thanks, I have one on the way! It's actually a little long for a paring knife, but it will fit pretty well appearance-wise with the Becker set. Yeah, that's about what I expected. I was about to buy a Shun Pro, then remembered how much I was indifferent on their handles. The way it feels in my hand plays a lot into how much I'll use it. I've always really liked the look of your paring knives, too, but have never been in the position to commit to purchasing.
