Today we are highlighting what is probably the most used knife in the kitchen. The paring knife. It is the perfect knife for peeling fruits and vegetables, slicing strawberries, kiwis, or shallots, coring tomatoes, or quartering apples. Just a reminder though, it isn't the knife for cutting hard vegetables like carrots or parsnips. While the paring knife is great for softer fruits and vegetables, it doesn't have enough weight to easily cut through harder vegetables which forces you to use more pressure to make the cut. If you find yourself using too much pressure to cut a food item then you are probably using the wrong knife or a dull one, both of which can be dangerous.
The Rada Cutlery Regular Paring Knife has a 3.25-inch high-carbon stainless steel blade,hand-sharpened to a razor sharp edge. The hollow-ground blades ensure a precision concave surface for easy sharpening, and a finger guard helps ensure safety when cutting. The paring knife comes in either the silver brushed aluminum handle or the black stainless steel resin handle for better dishwasher tolerance.The Regular Paring knife is Rada Cutlery’s all-time best-selling knife and is beloved by cooks all across America.
