Best Paring Knife: Paring Knives Review.

Paring knives review:


Paring knives are one of the 3 most important knives in the kitchen after the Chef knife and before the bread knife. Most home cooks use a paring knife for a variety of tasks, some of which are not recommended like using the knife as a screw driver. Every knife company makes several versions of this knife and we thought it would be useful to examine this knife among several competing models and give our opinion. The knives we tested we used for several months and all did a reasonable job. The knives were used under regular home conditions and the knives were hand washed after use and stored on a magnetic rack between uses. Here are our favorite paring knives in order of quality.


#1 Tojiro Petty Knife (DP) This was the best performing paring knife we tested out of the

                                                box. The knife kept its edge well and was easy to use.


#2 Sugimoto Petty Knife: This knife was an excellent performer as well. Super sharp and

                                          great edge retention of the blade.


#3 Kikuichi Petty Knife (Molybdenum): Not quite as sharp out of the box as the two    

                                                                above but a good overall performer.


#4 Shun Paring Knife (Classic): Good knife but funky D shaped handle means that home

users need to be all right handed or left handed to share knife


#5 Hiromoto Petty Knife: Good knife and razor sharp. The edge develops patina on it

                                         which some users might not like.


#6 Mac Paring Knife (Pro Series): The Mac is a good performer but was a little small and       

                                                            fat which some users did not like.


#7 Wusthof Paring Knife (Classic): Not as sharp as the Japanese knives out of the box.


#8 Global Paring Knife: Handle was funky and not comfortable on initial test.


#9 Henckels Paring Knife: (Pro S): Not very sharp but good design and feel. Excellent

                                                            fit and finish.


#10 Forschner Paring Knife (Fibrox): Worst knife we tested. Cheap plastic handle and

                                                            thin blade. Felt cheap (it is cheap).
