Like the chef's knife, the paring knife is exceptionally versatile. It gets its name from its main function—removing or “paring” away things like peels or pits from fruits and vegetables. It's ideal for peeling, coring, trimming, decorating, and other detail work. Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade. The contour of the handle provides a secure, comfortable grip.
