Your chef's knife might be your right hand in the kitchen, but it's not always the right tool for every task. It will be awkward if you use an 8-inch chef's knife to remove each little leaf and core of a carton of strawberries.
Instead, you know to reach for a smaller, more flexible paring knife. What kind of paring knife? Perhaps this TUO Paring Knife.
We've described paring knives as ‘’small but mighty.’’ This means that quite literally — the blade is only 3.5 inches and is designed for jobs that require a bit more dexterity and delicacy. Paring knives can help you remove the stems from strawberries, shrimp, peel apples, and more.
These are all things a lesser knife could handle, but the task is so much faster with a good, sharp paring knife. It's quick and super precise.
You can get a really sharp, durable paring knife at an equally small price tag. But this Black Hawk paring knife I'm talking about is made of Germany high-carbon stainless steel with full tang and a luxury ergonomic Pakkawood handle, and it also just costs $21.95.
Do you have any other smart tips and good ideas for your paring knife?
