Hac is the Vietnamese word for heron.
The heron stands for stability and harmony. Figures of herons standing on turtles can often be seen in pagodas and temples. These sculptures symbolize the harmony between heaven and earth. The heron can also be found on the famous Dong Son drums.
This small paring knife is ideal for peeling and cutting of fruit and vegetables, for garnishing and for other food preparation tasks. Despite the small size, harder foods such as potatoes can easily be processed with the knife.
Each of our knives is handcrafted in a traditional blacksmith village in northern Vietnam.
