The paring knife is the specialist in peeling and carving all things fruits and vegetables. Unlike the chef knife, you can hold a paring knife in one hand and the food you're cutting with the other while working in the air. Dexter Russell paring knives can peel the thickest skinned fruits and with their short blades make them excellent options for foods that require attention to detail. Their pointed edges and sharp blades allow them to pierce food easily for tasks like coring fruit and gutting peppers. Are you looking for a quality knife for commercial or home use, but on a budget? If so, look no further.
