We developed the Trillium paring knife for detailed in-hand work and board-cutting of smaller items. A lot of people, including professional chefs, are used to throw-away paring knives. The Trillium is a keeper. Well maintained, it can last a lifetime. The bite of its S35VN steel will impress you right out of the shipping box and it will hold its edge better than the vast majority of factory made knives.

The Trillium’s standard handle material is waterproof and practically indestructible G10, held on with stainless steel screws. It can also be ordered with west coast wood handles if you prefer a unique natural look.

The Trillium comes in two blade finishes: CNC finish is our original eye-catching look in which the machining lines remain on display. The hand-applied satin finish offers a more traditional look. More on our blade finishes.

The Trillium, like all of North Arm’s kitchen knives, takes its name from West Coast flora. The Western Trillium is a white-flowered forest plant that may take 15 years to bloom.

This is the brief info sheet we include in the box with the Trillium. For further information on care and sharpening look at the pages under the “knife care” tab on the menu bar.

We back all of our knives with a warranty and satisfaction guarantee!

    For many years I’ve used German made Henckels 4 stars in the kitchen. They are pretty good, but I wanted something with better steel. Having some pocket knives with S30V and S35V I thought that one of these steels would be just right. I ordered a Trillium to try it out. Before writing this review I placed an order for 3 more knives( A trillium, a Salal and a Coho). They are brilliant. Everything I expected and a little more. The edge holding is incredible, especially with my wife’s heavy use. Nice balance and finish. The real icing on the cake is that they are Canadian made. Well done. All The Best Harry Barth

    If you haven’t tried this little paring knife,I’d encourage you to do so. It quickly replaced my expensive Shun paring knife and becomes to my favourite little knife in my house. The quality of the knife is great and the design is brilliant. Instead of giving out as a gift, I’ve decided to keep it for myself.

    This knife makes for fantastic performance in a small package. I went with the cnc finish and red G-10 and the superb design of the knife and materials make for an amazing rock solid slicer in the kitchen. Amazing deal if you’re in the U.S. due to the exchange rate (as of July 2016).

    A fantastic little paring knife. Very comfortable to hold and the perfect size for peeling and paring. I haven’t had my hand cramp once while holding this. This holds a razor’s edge for an absurdly long time. I find myself looking forward to peeling potatoes and working all those tiny jobs that require dexterity.

    I bought one of these knives probably three years ago now. I initially liked the look of the knife and after using it for a few years now, I have really come to love the quality of the design and materials used. You will not find a better knife for the price anywhere, and they are made in BC on top of that. I can’t recommend this knife, or this company enough!
