With its blade of 11cm (4.5 inches), the paring knife is simply the best for peeling fruit and vegetables. Use it for any job in the kitchen that requires precise and delicate work, like removing the ribs from a jalapeño or coring an apple. Unlike the chef's knife, you can peel and cut with the paring knife while holding it aloft. The small handle offers maximum control over the tip and edge of the blade.
REINVENT YOUR FOOD!
The pairing knife blade is made from stain-resistant multilayer steel MLS33-VG10, which consists of 33 layers of steel with an extra hard V-Gold 10-core (61 +/- 1 HRC). Here are some imaginative tasks for your pairing knife:
Hull Strawberries: Use the tip of the knife to remove the stem and cut out the white center core from the stem-end of each strawberry. Fill it with mango sorbet/chocolate mousse and enjoy a delicious dessert.
Section Oranges or Lemons:
Hold the fruit over a bowl to catch all the juice that falls down. Peel the fruit completely, then cut between the white membranes to extract each juicy section. It is a great method for decorating cakes!
Cut a shallow slit down the outside curve of the shrimp; remove the dark vein, and rinse the shrimp under cold water.
