Paring knife features

A paring knife is a small kitchen knife, usually with a blade length of approx. 6 to 11 cm. These knives resemble little chef's knives. There can be a bit of confusion surrounding the term paring knife. It's often confused with peeling knives and turning knives. Which makes sense; you can use a paring knife to peel. Paring knives are real all-purpose knives. Peeling knives on the other hand, are specifically designed to peel vegetables and fruit. A turning knife, on the other hand, is perfect to cut vegetables and fruit in small and decorative shapes. These intricate movements are harder to do with a paring knife.

Thanks to its small size, a paring knife is perfect for fine and precise cutting tasks. For example, cutting small vegetables, fruits, herbs and other ingredients into pieces.

How to choose the best paring knife

The sharp blade of a paring knife

The knives are sharp upon delivery, which is great for peeling fruit and vegetables with thin or delicate skins, such as potatoes, apples and kiwis. It is also super practical for removing seeds and cores from tomatoes or apples, for example.

How to choose the best paring knife

Are you looking for a small knife to complete your set? A paring knife is the right choice. The blade is long enough to make it a good all-round kitchen knife, and short enough to perform precise cutting tasks. The blades are often made from stainless steel, which is very low maintenance. Other paring knives are made from carbon steel, which is not stainless but very hard. Choose the material and size that suits your needs.

Maintaining your new paring knife

To properly maintain your paring knife, it is important to rinse it well after each use and clean it by hand using a mild soap. Besides cleaning, you should also sharpen your knife on a regular basis. How often you need to sharpen your knife depends on how often you use it.
